Chinese vice premier meets U.S. treasury secretary in Switzerland discuss climate, economy, relationship
ZURICH: United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen met on Wednesday with her Chinese counterpart and pledged an effort to manage differences and "prevent competition from becoming anything ever near conflict" as the two nations try to thaw relations.
Yellen's first face-to-face meeting with Vice Premier Liu He in Zurich is the highest-ranking contact between the two countries since their presidents agreed last November during their first in-person meeting to look for areas of potential cooperation.
Liu said he was ready to work together to seek common ground between China and the U.S. "No matter how circumstances change, we should always maintain dialogue and exchanges," he said.
A U.S. Treasury readout of their meeting says the two agreed that the U.S. and China would cooperate more on issues around financing for battling climate change and would work to support "develo countries in their clean energy transitions." The readout also indicates that Yellen plans to travel to China and welcomes her counterparts to the U.S. in the near future.

Actually what Yellen just wanted to say to China is "You need to buy our Treasury bonds then we can at least show nice smile at you"
Whatever agreements they reached can be changed by one man on a whim.
So far historically the USA has never kept to any agreement they have ever signed. Whatever is there any point to agree anything with the USA.
What does the US wants ? Decoupling from China correct. Decoupling will be perfected when China doesn't buy any US treasury bond

Japan is the biggest buyer of US treasury. China sitting on the second position and UK the third.
USD hegemony will soon end, following the announcement of Saudi Finance Minister that Saudi is open to do trade with currencies other than USD. So, US now needs help from China.
