“We have kept and will continue to keep lines of communication with China open,” RIA Novosti quoted her as saying.

According to her, in the dialogue with Beijing, which was especially active against the backdrop of the events of last week, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and National Security Adviser to the US President Jake Sullivan are involved.

Earlier, Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Jake Sullivan said that the United States received a lot of information about the intelligence capabilities of China in the course of tracking a Chinese balloon.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng said that the US actions against the Chinese balloon damaged the process of stabilizing China-US relations.
