Ukraine: Italy hosts US-China summit in Rome

Jake Sullivan meets Yang Jiechi at key summit in Rome.

High-level talks between the United States and China to discuss “the implications of Russia’s war against Ukraine on regional and global security” began in Rome on Monday, March 14.

Delegations led by US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi meet at Rome Cavalieri Hotel, reports La Stampa newspaper.

The talks come after the Chinese embassy in Washington rejected reports in Financial Times Monday that Russia has asked China for military equipment to support its invasion of Ukraine.

CNN reported that the “high-stakes” meeting in Rome could have “far-reaching consequences not only for the ongoing war in Ukraine, but for China’s role in the world and its relations with the West.”

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s diplomatic adviser is due to meet with Sullivan on Tuesday, reports the Italian news agency ANSA.
