The two nations are slowly resuming contact after the January shift of administration in the US. Some parts of US policy are becoming clearer, but it's still not publicly clear.
Commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng declared the two sides have agreed to pragmatically solve some issues for producers and consumers while promoting stable economic and trade ties.
However, US statements on the relationship with China differ greatly with Representative Katherine Tai declaring the relationship as being unhealthy and damaging.
Meanwhile, China opposes any official contact between the US and Taiwan, regarding it as part of its territory, furthermore, any discussions will unavoidably be linked with US and China relations and could increase the tensions between the two.
