Reuters reports, citing senior US administration officials on the matter
- Reaching agreement and specific outcomes was not purpose of US-China talks
- Potential Biden-Xi meeting was not discussed
- Important for US, China to addressed shared issues
- US came to China talks with realistic expectations, not expecting major breakthroughs
As mentioned earlier in the day, don’t expect much from the talks here in Tianjin. They are merely for the optics and won’t change how things are developing between the two countries given the fact that the officials in attendance aren’t the major “generals”.
We’ll just have to see if there are any other follow-up meetings, otherwise that’s about it.
