Two Cabinet Secretaries May Visit China 

White House announces the U.S. in discussions with Beijing officials. 

The White House National Security Coordinator John Kirby stated that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo could be making a visit to China very soon. 

“We’re having discussions with the PRC right now about [a] potential visit by Secretary Yellen and Secretary Raimondo to go over there and talk about economic issues. So there’s that that we’re still working,” he said. “So, all of that, keeping those lines of communication open, are still valuable.” 

A trip in February by Secretary of State Antony Blinken was postponed over the Chinese spy balloon incident. Coordinator Kirby said, “We still want to get Secretary Blinken back to Beijing. … And we’re still hopeful to get it back on the calendar.” 

“We’re hoping to get the economic lines open. The military-to-military lines are not open, and that’s a problem,” he explained. “That was, as you know, one of the things we were hoping Secretary Blinken would get thawed for us because they are frozen.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Coordinator Kirby and Press Secretary Jean-Pierre to be accurate in the relaying of information from the administration.
  • For Secretaries Yellen and Raimondo as they prepare for the possible discussions with Chinese leaders.
  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s wisdom as they determine next steps with China.
