Two senior Chinese and US diplomats held an “in-depth” exchange on regional issues in Washington, the latest sign that both sides are engaging in more open channels of communications. Sun Weidong, China’s vice-foreign minister for Asia, met Daniel Kritenbrink, US assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific Affairs in Washington, the US State Department said in a statement on Thursday night.

The talks were held as a Chinese trade council warned future high-level meetings could be at risk from a US executive order curbing investment in sensitive technologies in China.

The two diplomats in charge of their nations’ Asian affairs held a “candid, in-depth and constructive consultation on regional issues as part of continuing efforts to maintain open lines of communication,” the statement said.
