Don’t expect a breakthrough in U.S.-China talks - former Australian prime minister

CNBC reports that former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said that the meeting between U.S. and Chinese officials this week in Alaska is unlikely to produce any major breakthroughs.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security advisor Jake Sullivan will hold high-level, in-person talks on Thursday with China’s Yang Jiechi, a member of the Communist Party’s top decision-making body, and Wang Yi, the foreign minister. It will be the Biden administration’s first high-level meeting with Chinese officials.

“It’s more likely to be a dialogue about dialogue rather than substantive problem-solving,” said Rudd.

The two countries are searching for a new strategic narrative to govern their bilateral relationship, which structurally has become “more problematic” due to the shifting balance of power between Washington and Beijing, according to Rudd. He explained that China’s rising influence has made the two superpowers fierce rivals in areas of trade, investment, technology, capital markets, influence as well as ideology.
