Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang met with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Beijing on Sunday. Blinken's trip is the highest level by a US official to China in nearly five years.

The two sides said Foreign Minister Qin Gang agreed to pay a return visit to Washington at a later date and that the two top diplomats would work together to expand flights between the world's two largest economies, which remain at a bare minimum since the Covid-19 pandemic.
