“We don’t believe that is how responsible nations act, given the global importance of U.S.-China competition,” el funcionario dijo, adding that the administration continues to believe in the importance of maintaining “open lines of communication.”
“The lower lines of engagement had not been fruitful,” the official explained. “We have not been satisfied thus far.”
