Yellen Appeals To China To Revive Talks And Not Let Technology Tensions Disrupt Ties

BEIJING (AP) — Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has appealed to China’s No. 2 leader not to let frustration over U.S. curbs on access to processor chips and other technology disrupt economic cooperation during a visit aimed at improving strained relations.

Meeting with Premier Li Qiang, Yellen said Washington and Beijing have a duty to cooperate on issues that affect the world.

She appealed for communication at a time when relations are at their lowest in decades due to disputes over technology, security and other irritants.

Yellen is one of a series of senior U.S. officials due to visit Beijing to try to encourage Chinese leaders to revive interaction.
