Secretary Blinken Meets with Chinese Vice President at UN

The U.S. is dedicated to improving communication.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Chinese Vice President Han Zheng while both attended the UN’s General Assembly this week, the latest in frequent meetings between U.S. and Chinese officials. The two leaders agreed to remain dedicated to open lines of communication and discussed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, North Korea, and the management of the Taiwan Strait.

“From the perspective of the United States, face-to-face diplomacy is the best way to deal with areas where we disagree, and also the best way to explore areas of cooperation between us,” Secretary Blinken said at the beginning of their meeting. 

“The world expects us to responsibly manage our relationship,” Secretary Blinken added. “The United States is committed to doing just that.”
