U.S.-China Diplomacy Resumes

Secretary Blinken met with Chinese Foreign Minister Qin for a conversation on a broad range of topics.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken wrapped up his trip to Beijing early this week, where he spent two days meeting with a number of Chinese leaders, including President Xi Jinping and Foreign Minister Qin Gang. This was the first diplomatic communication between the U.S. and China after months of delays. The two sides agreed to schedule further discussions between the two nations, including a potential visit to Washington by Foreign Minister Qin.

“The two sides underscored that the United States and China should work together to address shared transnational challenges, such as climate change, global macroeconomic stability, food security, public health, and counter-narcotics,” State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller said. “The Secretary encouraged further interaction between our governments on these and other areas, which is what the world expects of us.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary Blinken as he interacts with foreign diplomats and heads of state.
  • For U.S. ambassadors as they represent the United States around the world.
