Scandal on American-Chinese Negotiations

The second meeting in the framework of the dialogue between Washington and Beijing turned into a scandal. At the meeting in the capital of Alaska Anchorage, representatives of the US State Department violated the diplomatic protocol during opening speech, stated one of the Chinese delegates to the Agency “Xinhua”.

In turn, the Americans nominated the Chinese side of the oncoming accusations, POLITICO published.

The American side, according to a diplomat from the PRC, “significantly surpassed the allocated time” and spoke with “groundless attacks and charges” in connection with China’s policies, reports Xinhua. A US official in a conversation with Politico said that the representatives of the People’s Republic of China tightened the speech, as they were intended to “let dust in the eyes” and perform “with a priority for political theatricality and drama.”

In the public opening ceremony, the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China Yang Jiechi participated. Blinken in his speech criticized the PRC policy against Hong Kong, Taiwan, as well as the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Area, reports Associated Press. The clads in response said that China “will not take careless accusations from the United States.”

According to the description of the AP, the representative of the representative of China lasted more than 15 minutes, and Mr. Blinken, “apparently, was annoyed by the tone and duration” of his comments.

Negotiations in Anchorage began on March 18.
