US Expects Calls, Engagements With China in Coming Weeks

Must read

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken did not meet China’s foreign minister on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in India as the two sides had already had extended talks in Munich last month, the U.S. State Department spokesperson said on Thursday.

Speaking at a regular briefing, Ned Price said he expected there would be “additional calls and engagements” with China in the coming weeks.

“But we had just taken advantage of one opportunity a couple weeks ago,” he said, when asked why there was no meeting on the sidelines of the meeting of G20 foreign ministers in New Delhi.
