U.S.-China foreign ministers hold face-to-face meeting in New York… Taiwan’s discussion


The US and Chinese foreign ministers held a face-to-face meeting in New York on the 23rd (local time). This is the first face-to-face meeting since US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

According to China International Broadcasting (CGTN), US Secretary of State Tony Blincoln and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met in New York this morning. This meeting was the first in two months since the Bali summit in July, and the ministers of the two countries had a five-hour conversation.

This meeting is particularly noteworthy as it took place amid growing tensions between the two countries after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan in early August. At the time, China announced that it would suspend some military dialogues and cooperation with the United States, including armed demonstrations in the Taiwan Strait.

Therefore, the main topic of discussion between the two ministers at this meeting is also likely to be the Taiwan issue. Recently, US President Joe Biden’s ’60 Minutes’ interview draws more attention because he did not deny US military intervention in the case of China’s invasion of Taiwan.

Meanwhile, in Russia, which is invading Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin has formalized the ‘300,000 mobilization order’. In addition, President Putin has reiterated the nuclear threat he has proposed several times since the invasion in February.

In this regard, it is known that Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Putin at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting last week and expressed concerns about the Ukraine war. Therefore, discussions between the US and China regarding the current war situation are also of interest.

In addition, concerns about the resumption of North Korea’s seventh nuclear test, which have been raised since the beginning of this year, and the recent move to legislate nuclear force, are also expected to rise on the agenda at the meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries.

According to a video released, the two ministers held their right hands and shook hands for a few seconds before the meeting, taking a commemorative photo in front of the flags of the two countries lined up side by side. Afterwards, Director Wang gestured for a seat at the table by beckoning first.
