The US's travel warning for China before to Yellen's arrival might prevent relations from warming up.

China policy inconsistencies under the Biden administration have once again come to light.


Before US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen's planned trip to China this week, a Chinese observer compared the most recent travel advisory from Washington to a little area of turbulence on an aircraft that may briefly frighten passengers but won't result in a catastrophic incident like a crash.

According to a State Department spokesman quoted by CNN on Monday, the travel warning has been revised because the Chinese government "continues to participate in this practice" of "wrongful detention."

Prior to Janet Yellen's visit, which is planned for July 6–9, a travel alert was issued.

The travel advice from Washington is founded on unfounded allegations and slander. According to Lü Xiang, a research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, "on the one hand, it seeks to cover up the persistent and escalated gun violence and instability in its own nation by deceiving the public and stating "the situation in China is worse."

According to Lü Xiang, a research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, "on the one hand, it seeks to cover up the persistent and escalated gun violence and instability in its own nation by deceiving the public and stating "the situation in China is worse."

On the other side, the travel advisory is like a "minor incidence of turbulence during a flight" that prevents the planned visit by Yellen from potentially thawing relations. Thoughtful individuals from both nations have called for improved relations, practical cooperation, and active exchanges despite this unpleasant incident, given that China is one of the safest places in the world and that the claims made against it regarding its allegedly arbitrary detention are untrue.

According to Li Haidong, a professor at the China International Affairs University, the release of the travel advisory once again highlights the Biden administration's inconsistent stance on China.

Li told the Global Times that there is no doubt that a group of hawkish politicians in Washington are working to completely suppress the more pragmatic and rational atmosphere of understanding China that Yellen's visit to China may bring. Their goal is to toughen US foreign policy toward China while inciting a more hostile environment toward China at home, Li said.

The American business sector is counting on Yellen's visit because they think a wider group of perceptive individuals will be able to correct a number of incorrect economic and trade policies and measures implemented since the start of the trade war against China in 2018, according to Lü. He mentioned how frustrated with the US government's China policy the business community in the US is.

One important person is the US secretary of the treasury. According to Lü, the Biden administration must have granted her some freedom to advance US-China ties if she is permitted to travel to China.

At a meeting with Yellen on Monday, the Chinese ambassador to the US, Xie Feng, said that "a solid and stable China-US relationship serves the common interests of the two countries and symbolizes the shared goal of the world community." Xie outlined China's main concerns on economic and trade issues and urged the US to give them top priority and take appropriate steps to address them. According to the Chinese embassy on Tuesday, the discussion was open and fruitful, and all parties concurred that dialogue should continue.

During Yellen's visit, observers predict incremental and accumulated progress that may assist to warm relations.

In the post-pandemic age, Lü predicted that it would be a little stride for the two major economies and a significant leap for the global economy.
