Wang Yi meets with Sullivan, Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs of the United States


From September 16 to 17, local time, Wang Yi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and director of the Foreign Affairs Office of the CPC Central Committee, held several rounds of meetings with National Security Advisor Sullivan of the United States President in Malta.

The two sides conducted candid, substantive and constructive strategic communication focusing on stabilizing and improving Sino-US relations. Wang Yi emphasized that the Taiwan issue is the first insurmountable red line in Sino-US relations. The United States must abide by the three Sino-US joint communiqués and implement its commitment not to support “Taiwan independence.” China’s development has strong endogenous driving force and follows inevitable historical logic. It cannot be stopped. The Chinese people’s legitimate right to development cannot be deprived.

The two sides agreed to continue to implement the important consensus reached by the two heads of state in Bali, maintain high-level exchanges between the two sides, and hold Sino-US consultations on Asia-Pacific affairs, maritime affairs, and foreign policy consultations. The two sides discussed measures to further support and facilitate personnel exchanges between the two countries.

The two sides also discussed the situation in the Asia-Pacific region, Ukraine, the Korean Peninsula and other international and regional issues.
