The approach of the United States and Europe toward China is "increasingly convergent and aligned," U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said on Friday, following meetings with the chief of the European Union's diplomatic service. Sherman made the remarks at a joint online briefing hosted by the Brookings Institution with Stefano Sannino, the Secretary General of the European External Action Service.

Sannino said the EU recognized China's importance, but is not shying away when Beijing actions are not according to the rules, adding that China's moves toward EU member Lithuania were extremely worrying and not acceptable.
