US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will meet with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi during the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Friday, according to a schedule on the US Department of State website.

“[At] 3:30 p.m. LOCAL [14:30 GMT] Secretary Blinken meets with People’s Republic of China Director of the Office of Foreign Affairs Commission and Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Munich, Germany,” the schedule read.
