Jake Sullivan meets Wang Yi, expresses cautious optiminsm

The United States sees “limited” signs that China is willing to engage in military discussions. This was stated by White House advisor Jake Sullivan after a marathon meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

The two leaders met for 12 hours over the past weekend in Malta, it was announced on Sunday. During those discussions, the American advisor also expressed concerns about the assistance that China is providing to Russia and about Chinese activity in the Taiwan Strait.

A potential meeting between Presidents Xi Jinping and Joe Biden was also discussed. This may take place in November at a gathering of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in San Francisco.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs provided a similar account in a statement. However, the Chinese reiterated in the statement that Beijing views American interference in the relationship between China and Taiwan as a “red line.”

According to a U.S. government official, Sullivan emphasized that providing weapons or military aid to Taipei does not imply that the U.S. supports Taiwan’s independence or regards the island as a sovereign nation.

The Chinese foreign minister is expected to visit Moscow next week, where he will hold talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.
