On October 6, 2021 local time, Yang Jiechi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Director of the Office of the Central Foreign Affairs Commission, met with Sullivan, National Security Affairs Assistant to the President of the United States, in Zurich, Switzerland. The two sides exchanged comprehensive, candid and in-depth views on Sino-US relations and international and regional issues of common concern. The meeting was constructive and conducive to enhancing mutual understanding. The two sides agreed to take action to implement the spirit of the call between the two heads of state on September 10, strengthen strategic communication, properly manage differences, avoid conflict and confrontation, seek mutual benefit and win-win results, and work together to push China-US relations back on the right track of healthy and stable development.
Yang Jiechi pointed out that whether China and the United States can properly handle their relations has a bearing on the fundamental interests of the two countries and their peoples, as well as the future and destiny of the world. Cooperation between China and the United States will benefit both countries and the world. The confrontation between China and the United States will cause serious damage to both countries and the world. The United States should deeply understand the nature of mutual benefit and win-win relations between the two countries, and correctly understand China’s domestic and foreign policies and strategic intentions. China opposes using “competition” to define Sino-US relations.
Yang Jiechi said that China attaches importance to President Biden’s recent positive statements on Sino-US relations. He noted that the US has stated that it has no intention of containing China’s development and will not engage in a “new cold war”. He hopes that the US will adopt a rational and pragmatic policy toward China and work with China to respect each other’s core interests. To address major concerns, follow the path of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation between China and the United States.
Yang Jiechi expounded China’s solemn position on issues related to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Xinjiang, Tibet, sea, and human rights, and demanded that the US truly respect China’s sovereignty, security and development interests, and stop using the above issues to interfere in China’s internal affairs.
The United States expressed its adherence to the one-China policy.
The two sides also exchanged views on climate change and regional issues of common concern.
The two sides agreed to maintain regular dialogue and communication on important issues.
