Blinken to Meet Senior Chinese Officials in Alaska Next Week
Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken said on Wednesday that he and Jake Sullivan, President Biden’s national security adviser, would lay out concerns about Beijing’s actions and explore possible areas for cooperation.
This is an important opportunity for us to lay out, in very frank terms, the many concerns that we have with Beijing’s actions and behavior that are challenging the security, the prosperity and the values of the United States and our partners and allies. So we intend to raise, and we will raise the host of issues, some of which have already been touched on today that concern us. We’ll also explore whether there are avenues for cooperation. And we’ll talk about the competition that we have in China, with China to make sure that the United States has a level playing field, and that our companies and workers benefit from that. This is not a strategic dialogue. There’s no intent at this point for a series of follow on engagements. Those engagements, if they are to follow, really have to be based on the proposition that we’re seeing tangible progress and tangible outcomes on the issues of concern to us with China.
