US-China tensions

Gloves off in Alaska as US and China spar over new world order

Two-day talks end with both sides 'fundamentally at odds'

NEW YORK -- U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and national security adviser Jake Sullivan ended their two days of talks with their Chinese counterparts Friday, with Blinken rattling off a list of areas where the two sides are "fundamentally at odds."

"We certainly know, and knew going in, that there are a number of areas where we are fundamentally at odds, including China's actions in Xinjiang, with regard to Hong Kong, Tibet, increasingly Taiwan, as well as actions that it's taking in cyberspace," he told reporters in Anchorage, Alaska, after a three-hour session that morning.
