According to a Xinhua report, the two leaders met on the sidelines of the United Nations’ High-Level Segment in New York. “The two sides have every reason to achieve mutual success and prosperity,” the senior Chinese authority added.
Han expressed hope that the two nations will take practical measures, create favorable conditions, and do more to enhance understanding, mutual trust, and mutually beneficial cooperation.
The vice president advocated for strengthening bilateral ties and returning them to the path of stability.
Beijing-Washington relations have hit the worst moment in history due to the US economic war and its interference in domestic issues such as the Taiwan one.
The latest tensions between the two countries have to do with the US arms sale to Taiwan and the inclusion in President Joe Biden’s list that identifies China for the first time as one of the major drug transit or illicit drug-producing countries.
