Blinken to meet China VP in latest high-level contact

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 18: US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will meet Monday with China's vice president, the latest top-level dialogue in days between the rival powers.
The State Department said on its public schedule that Blinken will meet Vice President Han Zheng in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
The talks come as the United States watches with growing intrigue at personnel changes in Beijing. Qin Gang, handpicked by President Xi Jinping as foreign minister, was abruptly replaced in July by the veteran policymaker Wang Yi.
US officials initially expected Wang to travel to the annual UN meeting, where he may have met briefly with President Joe Biden, but instead China said that the comparatively lesser-known Han would come.    �AFP
