In a telephone conversation with his American counterpart, the Chinese foreign minister criticized the export restrictions imposed by the United States. These statements highlighted tensions between the two countries ahead of a face-to-face meeting between their leaders.
And according to what was reported by Bloomberg News Channel, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, according to a statement published by the Chinese Foreign Ministry, on Monday, that the US side should stop restricting and restricting China and creating new obstacles. The side has imposed new export control measures against China, restricted investment in China, severely violated the principles of free trade, and seriously harmed China’s legitimate rights and interests, which should be rectified.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price also said in a separate statement after this phone conversation that Wang Yi and Anthony Blinken discussed the need to maintain an open dialogue process and responsible management of their relations. Price said Blinken expressed concern about Russia’s war on Ukraine and the threats it poses to global security and economic stability, and they discussed instability in Haiti.
This was the first phone conversation between the US and Chinese secretaries of state since Wang Yi was promoted to the 24-member Communist Party Politburo earlier this month. A campaign that made him China’s highest-ranking diplomat. The two sides are preparing for a possible meeting between US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping when world leaders meet next month at the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.
Wang’s comments on the issue of US export controls were a clear indication of Washington’s move earlier this month to limit China’s access to chip-making technologies. These comments indicate that if Biden’s first meeting as president of the United States is with Chinese leaders, it will be a contentious issue.
