Last week Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng and Ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai both gave speeches on US-China relations. There were no new proposals in their comments, perhaps Yang will offer more than just another round of exhortations for the US to change its behavior and return to the correct path.

“Yang is likely to ask the new US government to remedy the wrong policies adopted by Trump, for example, the restrictions on China in the tech and trade sector,” said Lu Xiang, a specialist on US affairs at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
“He will also warn that the US will bear heavy consequences if it follows the same path as Trump.”..
