In this inaugural episode of "He Talks", former Vice Foreign Minister of China Mr. He Yafei sits down with China-US Focus special advisor Mr. Zhu Yinghuang for a conversation on the outcomes of the Mar-a-Lago summit between President Xi Jinping and President Donald Trump in early April. Mr. He notes that Xi, during the meeting and in a follow-up phone call with Trump, made clear China’s position on the Korean Peninsula crisis – no nuclear weapons, no war and yes to political solutions. Mr. He asserts: “China will not allow war at its doorstep.”
About "He Talks"
Mr. He Yafei has always been a person in the know. As one of the top diplomats with China’s Foreign Ministry during the first decade of the 21st century, Mr. He directed China’s teams in multilateral international negotiations, including the climate change talks, and dealt directly with U.S. State Department at key junctures in bilateral ties. After his retirement from the public service, he became a sought-after public speaker, an academic on globalization and China’s diplomacy, and a strong advocate for a robust China-US relationship. With “He Talks”, we are tapping into this veteran Chinese diplomat-turned academic for his take on issues pertinent to China-US relations.
