Washington: US officials have confirmed the visit of CIA Director William Burns to China.
According to foreign media, the American CIA director William Burns made a secret visit to China last month. An American official confirmed the visit and said that the purpose of the CIA director’s visit to China was to restore relations between the United States and China. It was an attempt. The visit was unannounced.
Officials added that the CIA director’s visit did not yield substantial results. Last month, China rejected an offer by the Pentagon for a phone call between the defense chiefs of the two countries.
US-China relations have been strained in recent years. US Secretary of State Anthony Blanken canceled a visit to China earlier this year just hours before he was due to leave.
