A report reveals that a Chinese embassy official asked the United States to ease sanctions on Beijing so that the two countries could resume high-level military talks.
President Xi Jinping of China turned down Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s invitation to establish an emergency communications channel between the two nations earlier this month. China also declined to attend a May meeting between military leaders of the two countries.
When asked about China’s failure to interact with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chinese officials have previously alluded to penalties on Chinese Minister of National Defense Li Shangfu.
U.S. sanctions on Li date back to 2018 and stem from his purchase of military aircraft and related hardware through a Russian defense company.
U.S. officials have frequently stressed the need to maintain open lines of communication with China in the wake of rising tensions over Taiwan’s independence, trade, and a Chinese spy balloon’s intrusion into American airspace several months ago.
According to reports, when asked if the United States would take action to prevent China from constructing a purported military espionage facility in Cuba, Secretary of State Antony Blinken declined to commit either way. Blinken dodged the question.
As reported, China and Cuba are believed to be in talks to set up a joint training center in Cuba. The Chinese will establish a military surveillance facility less than 100 miles from Florida.
