This week, the foreign ministers of China and the United States, Wang Yi and Jake Sullivan, each held an important dialogue in Bangkok. During the meeting, Wang mentioned that the issue of “Taiwan independence” would pose the biggest risk to relations with the American superpower.

Bilateral meeting amid geopolitical conflicts

This conversation between the ministers takes place two months after the meeting between Presidents Joe Biden (USA) and Xi Jinping (China). On this occasion, they met on the sidelines of the AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation Summit in San Francisco.

Furthermore, ChinaUS relations witnessed a tumultuous start in 2023 amid a harrowing geopolitical scenario. However, in the second half of the year, countries began holding more frequent meetings to stabilize their diplomatic and political ties. .

Expectations and political strategies

The obstacles are diverse. These include Taiwan's democratic presidential transition, scheduled for May this year, and the American elections. Furthermore, China's economic difficulties could weaken Beijing's combative stance toward Washington. Not to mention the possible consequences of a rapprochement between Russia and China.

After the meeting, the ministers agreed to properly handle sensitive and important issues between the two countries, a Chinese Foreign Ministry statement said. The statement also revealed that Presidents Xi Jinping and Joe Biden “will maintain regular contact to provide strategic guidance on bilateral relations… and make good use of current strategic communication channels.”

In this complex context, analysts and world leaders are paying attention to the evolution of SinoAmerican relations, which have significant implications for the global geopolitical order and the direction of the global economy.
