US, China set to begin wary diplomacy on G-20 sidelines

Wang, Tillerson to talk economics, maritime advances at first official meeting

OKI NAGAI, Nikkei staff writer | China

BEIJING -- China and the U.S. will wade gingerly into bilateral diplomacy this week as Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson meet for the first time on the sidelines of the Group of 20 foreign ministers meeting in Germany.

U.S. President Donald Trump recently paved the way for full-scale diplomacy when he told Chinese President Xi Jinping that he would respect the long-standing "one China" policy, under which the U.S. recognizes Taiwan and mainland China as part of the same country.
