China tells US: Remove tariffs on Chinese exports to restore relations

  • China is calling for a resetting of Sino-US relations
  • Chinese diplomat Wang Yi says Beijing is ready to continue constructive dialogue with Washington
  • Relations between the both countries got lowest in decades under former President Donald Trump

China tells US that we can cooperate on issues such as climate change and the coronavirus pandemic. But if we repair our damaged bilateral relations, senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi said.

Wang, China’s adviser and foreign minister, said “China is always ready to continue constructive dialogue with United States. Relations between both countries got lowest in decades under former President Donald Trump.

China tells US to remove tariffs on Chinese exports and its irrational crackdown on China’s technology sector. These steps will get the “necessary conditions” for future cooperation.

Before Wang speaks at a foreign-sponsored forum, officials played video of ping-pong diplomacy from 1972 when a table tennis players make a way for US President Richard Nixon to visit China.

Wang urged Washington to respect China’s core interests, stop defaming the ruling Communist Party, stop interfering in Beijing’s internal affairs, and stop “considering” Taiwan’s independence for separatist forces.

“In last years, the Washington has largely disrupted bilateral dialogue between countries at all levels,” Wang Yi said.

“We Chinese are always ready for open communication and problem-solving relational dialogues with the United States”, he added.

Wang cited the recent phone call between Chinese President and US President as a positive step.

Both have fought on multiple fronts, including trade, human rights allegations against the Uyghur Muslim minority in the China’s Xinjiang region and Beijing’s territorial claims to the resource-rich South China Sea.

However, the Biden government has signaled it will continue to pressure Beijing. Biden has expressed his concerns about China’s “forced and unfair” trade practices. Also supported the Trump administration’s decision that China had committed genocide in Xinjiang region.

However, Biden is also committed to a more diversified approach and is prepared to work with Beijing on issues such as climate change and convince North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons.
