I have a feeling that recently, whenever U.S. officials talk to Chinese officials, whatever the topics are, Chinese leaders like Xi Jinping, Wang Yi or Yang Jiechi always keep saying things like "Taiwan is an inalienable part of China", "do not interfere in other countries’ internal affairs", "The issues with Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong are internal affairs of China", "All countries should solve international disputes by peaceful means in line with the purposes and principles of the UN Charter".... which seems to leave very little room for negotiation. But on the other hand, the conversations between U.S. and China are always going.
How could the recent conversation between U.S. and China be constructive given that Chinese officials always repeat their "political cliche"? Or, are there any recent examples that Chinese officials indeed said something that are substantial and constructive to the resolution of problems in the international affairs? Or, the conversation between U.S. and China is just a gesture and they never expected to have anything constructive to give out?
