BEIJING — China and the United States will hold their first social and people-to-people dialogue on Sept 28 in Washington D.C., Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a routine press briefing on Sept 25.
Vice-Premier Liu Yandong will co-chair the dialogue with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
The two sides will have in-depth exchange of views on bilateral exchanges and cooperation in relevant areas, according to Lu.
“China would like to work with the United States for a positive outcome from the dialogue,” Lu said.
The meeting is one of the four high-level dialogues established during the Mar-a-Lago meeting between President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump in Florida in April.
At that meeting, the two sides agreed to establish high-level dialogue mechanisms, including the diplomatic and security dialogue, the comprehensive economic dialogue, the law enforcement and cybersecurity dialogue, and the social and people-to-people dialogue.
