US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen will go to China “in the next few days”, and the head of US diplomacy, Antony Blinken, “in the next few weeks”, to continue the dialogue, a White House official announced. The dialogue was not intended to make “announcements”, but rather “to take stock” after the California summit, she said.

Joe Biden today stressed to Xi Jinping that the United States wants ownership of the TikTok app to change hands, said National Security Council spokesman John Kirby. “The president reiterated our concerns. He made it clear to Xi that this is not a ban on the app, but rather our interest in selling assets so that the national security interests and data security of the American people can be protected. “

China and the United States went through a period of very strong tension in early 2023, when a Chinese balloon flew over American territory.

– ‘Intense diplomacy’ –

“Intense competition requires intense diplomacy to manage tensions, address misperceptions and avoid unwanted conflicts. And this phone call is a way of doing that”, explained the Executive official, speaking anonymously.

Despite the thaw, there is no sign of a rapprochement in official press releases released by both sides, especially when the subject is Taiwan.
