The Chinese Foreign Ministry called the negotiations between Wang Yi and Sullivan frank.

Negotiations between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Presidential Assistant for National Security Jake Sullivan in Malta were frank, meaningful and constructive, and the parties agreed to maintain high-level communications, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.

“The parties held frank, meaningful, constructive strategic communications on the issues of stabilizing and improving Sino-American relations,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.


It is noted that Wang Yi emphasized that the Taiwan issue is the main red line in bilateral relations, which cannot be crossed.

“The parties agreed to continue implementing the consensus reached by the heads of the two countries on the island of Bali, maintain high-level communications, and also hold Sino-American consultations on issues of the Asia-Pacific region, maritime affairs and foreign policy issues,” the statement said.

Earlier it was reported that Sullivan and Wang Yi in Malta also discussed the possibility of a meeting between American President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping. A senior US administration official later said that the US had nothing to report yet about a possible future meeting between Biden and Xi Jinping.
