Tensions between the United States and China have increased, and the secret visit may be of great importance.

The Financial Times reported on Saturday, citing US government sources, that the director of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) paid a secret visit to China. According to sources in the London Business Daily, William Burns traveled to Beijing in May, where he held talks with Chinese government officials. Speaking to the Financial Times, a US government official said: In his China meetings, Burns primarily emphasized the importance of keeping channels of communication open.

The British newspaper indicates that the highest official in US President Joe Biden’s administration visited China in the person of the CIA director.

According to the Financial Times Commentary. According to the newspaper’s sources, last year Biden assigned the director of the CIA to try to dissuade Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives at the time, from visiting Taiwan.

Relations between China and the United States fell to a new low after Nancy Pelosi’s official visit to Taiwan, and China conducted large-scale military exercises near the island in response to the visit of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives.

Meanwhile, the Financial Times notes in its Saturday article that Joe Biden declared last month, at the Hiroshima summit of the Group of Seven (G7) major industrialized nations:
