La Secretaria del Tesoro de EE. US, Janet Yellen, will visit China this week, becoming the second official of the Biden administration’s cabinet and traveling to Beijing as the two countries intensify efforts to stabilize their problematic relationship.
Yellen will spend four days in Beijing to reunite with Chinese officials and important American businessmen, according to a senior Treasury official, who warned that the trip would produce “significant advances”. No Espara que Yellen se reúna conel presidente Xi Jinping.
His visit took place a few weeks after the Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, traveled to China to reactivate efforts to set the foundations for a relationship that is still in its worst moment since the two countries established relationships.
Yellen and Blinken are the continuation of an agreement reached between Joe Biden and Xi in Bali in November, which was derailed after a suspected Chinese spy balloon flew over the United States at the beginning of this year.
“Through this journey, we seek to deepen and increase the frequency of contacts between our two countries to advance and stabilize the relationship to avoid misunderstandings and expand cooperation where possible,” said the official.
He said that Yellen will discuss with Chinese officials the three pillars of economic relations between the United States and China that he described in a speech that he pronounced in April.
Yellen dijo entonces that the United States guarantees its national security interests, including human rights, but does not use security tools to obtain a competitive economic advantage. Agrigo that the United States wanted a healthy economic relationship with China, but that it would respond to its “unjust economic practices”. He emphasized that the United States sought cooperation to address global challenges, such as debt relief and the climate.
Ivan Medeiros, former alto funcionario de la Casa Blanca and expert in China de la Université de Georgetown, dijo que el viaje de Yellen era “simplemente el siguiente paso en un proceso incierto”.
“Es bueno hacer eso, peroes difícil ver como mueves el balon en el complejo juego de una competition de gran poder”, dijo Medeiros. “Dada la Natareza Militarista de la Becancia y las visiones del mundo en competencia, es difícil ver cómo la visita hace avanzar la pelota más de unos pocos metros”

In his April speech, Yellen also emphasized that the United States does not follow a policy of “decoupling” from China. Speaking a week later, national security adviser Jake Sullivan repeated that line and made it clear that the United States was committed to ” no correr riesgos”, using a phrase coined by the President of the European Commission.
The Chinese prime minister, Li Qiang, criticized this week the rhetoric of the United States and its allies on the elimination of risks. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Tianjin, he said that they are dedicated to the “politicization of economic issues”.
