As specified on the website of the Chinese department, the parties exchanged views on certain issues during an informal meeting of the leaders of the participating states of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum in Bangkok.
"Wang Wentao accepted Catherine Tai's offer to hold a meeting," reads a short message posted on the ministry's website. "The parties expressed their mutual readiness to continue to support the dialogue [on trade and economic issues]."
It clarifies that after the talks between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Joe Biden on the Indonesian island of Bali, Beijing and Washington maintain contacts with each other to resolve trade and economic problems, which "are sincere, professional and constructive."
