According to the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the US official will be in China until Friday and the talks will be held in Tianjin municipality.

The Ministry stated that the talks will include the exchange of points of view prior to the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), scheduled for November in Glasgow, Scotland.

Kerry’s previous trip took place in April and he became the first senior official of US President Joe Biden’s administration that visited China.

This trip resulted in the decision by both powers to face ‘with seriousness and urgency’ the problems derived from climate change and promote the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

According to a joint communique, the parties will work with concrete actions in order to achieve the goals of maintaining the global average temperature increase below two degrees Celsius and limiting it to 1.5 degrees.

Local observers interpret Kerry’s two visits as a positive sign amid the ongoing frictions between the two countries in different fields.

Since President Joe Biden took office, Beijing has proposed tackling climate change as one of the issues to work along with the northern nation, after four years of impasse.
