Senior Chinese and US officials will hold a high-level strategic dialogue in Anchorage, Alaska from March 18 to 19, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said on Thursday.
In an online statement, Zhao Lijian, spokesman of the Chinese foreign ministry, said Yang Jiechi, director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee, and Wang Yi, Chinese foreign minister, will attend the upcoming meeting.
The two senior Chinese diplomats will hold talks with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan in Anchorage, according to the statement.
In a second statement, Zhao reaffirmed China’s call for efforts from the US to bring the bilateral ties back on track.
The planned dialogue in Alaska is expected to be the first in-person meeting between the two countries’ top officials since US President Joe Biden took office.
