Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi has called for better China-U.S. relations in his first remarks since U.S. President Joe Biden took office. In a virtual meeting with board members of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, Yang said China is willing to work with the U.S. to move the relationship forward, but will also stand firm in defending China’s interests. He highlighted what both sides could do to put the relationship back on track toward peaceful coexistence. What will it take to put ties back on track?
