Top U.S., Chinese diplomats meet to discuss relationship

WASHINGTON, Feb 28 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi discussed improving and maintaining a “mutually beneficial economic relationship” between the United States and China, the State Department said on Tuesday.

Tillerson and Yang, China’s top diplomat, also affirmed the importance of “regular high-level engagement” between the two countries during their meeting in Washington, and discussed North Korea’s nuclear program, the State Department said in a statement.

Yang’s visit to the United States follows a phone call between him and Tillerson last week, during which the two affirmed the importance of a constructive U.S.-China relationship. (Reporting by Yeganeh Torbati; Editing by Matthew Lewis)
