Senior diplomats from China and the United States are in Anchorage, Alaska for highly anticipated talks —the first face-to-face– since the Biden administration took office. The dialogue comes after a major downturn in relations over the last few years. There are several key areas to address between the world’s two largest economies.
CGTN’s Mark Niu reports from Anchorage.
Joining the discussion:
- Qinduo Xu is Senior Fellow at the Pangoal Institution and host of CGTN’s Dialogue Weekend.
