Wendy Sherman, the U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, will visit Tianjin on July 25 and 26. She will become the most senior American official to visit China since President Biden took office, and the highest-ranked U.S. representative to have a face-to-face discussion with Chinese counterparts since the acrimonious encounter in Anchorage, Alaska, in March.
 

In a statement on Wednesday, the US State Department said the discussions were part of “ongoing US efforts to hold candid exchanges with PRC officials to advance US interests and values and to responsibly manage the relationship”.
 

“The deputy secretary will discuss areas where we have serious concerns about PRC actions, as well as areas where our interests align,” it said, referring to the People’s Republic of China.
 

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xie Feng, a vice-minister in charge of US affairs, would also meet with Sherman during her visit on Sunday and Monday.

“China will make clear to the United States its position on the development of Sino-US relations and its firm attitude in safeguarding its sovereignty, security and development interests, and demand that the United States stop interfering in China‘s internal affairs and harming China’s interests,” the ministry said in a statement.
 

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the upcoming meetings had been proposed by the US side.
 

On Wednesday, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said China and the US should work together on climate change.
 

“As the largest developing country and the largest developed country, China and the US bear common responsibilities and are supposed to strengthen communication and cooperation to be an example for the world,” Zhao said.
 

美国常务副国务卿舍曼将在天津与王毅举行会见

美国副国务卿舍曼将于7月25日至26日访问天津,并在那里与国务委员兼外长王毅会面。
 

记者:美国常务副国务卿舍曼将于下周在天津与王毅举行会见。下一步,中方是否会与布林肯国务卿举行会谈?中美两国是否可能举行元首会见?为何选择在天津举行本次会见?
 

赵立坚:昨天我们已经介绍了,美方提出希望安排美国常务副国务卿舍曼近期访华,同中方就中美关系交换意见。经双方商定,舍曼将于7月25日至26日访问天津。届时,中国外交部主管中美关系的谢锋副部长将与舍曼会谈。之后,王毅国务委员兼外长将会见舍曼。中方将向美方表明对发展中美关系的原则立场以及维护自身主权安全发展利益的坚定态度,要求美方停止干涉中国内政、损害中国利益。
 

至于你提到的具体问题,我们将此访安排在天津,主要是出于防疫安排,还有考虑到天津离北京比较近的原因。
 

至于你提到的其他的中美会晤等方面的问题,我目前没有要发布的消息。
