Chinese diplomat in meeting with Pompeo urges expanded cooperation

BEIJING - China and the United States must expand political cooperation, the Asian nation's top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, said on Monday during a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, amid widening tensions between the two countries.

Pompeo, in the Chinese capital after meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said there were many issues on which Washington and Beijing disagree but it was important that both sides listen to each other.

The exchange struck a softer tone than one earlier, between Pompeo and Chinese Foreign Minister and State Councillor Wang Yi.
