Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Shi Feng spoke with visiting U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, according to an official statement.
Meanwhile, Shi Feng accused US President Joe Biden’s administration of trying to stop and suppress development in China.

Sherman held separate closed-door meetings at the Tianjin city compound with Xi and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, in charge of US-China relations.

Relations between the two countries deteriorated during the tenure of former US President Donald Trump and there is a situation of tension between the two over technology, cybersecurity, human rights and other issues.

“We must keep open the means of a high-level dialogue”
“China will never accept a country that claims to be superior to others,” Wang told Chinese Phoenix TV. “If America has not learned to treat other countries equally, then it is the responsibility of China and the international community to help America learn this,” he said. -he declares. Officials in the Biden administration said the purpose of the talks was not to discuss a specific topic, but to keep avenues for high-level dialogue open. Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are also expected to meet on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Rome in late October.
