According to Price, Blinken and Yi spoke about several topics including the need to preserve open lines of communication to manage the relationship between the US and the People’s Republic of China in a responsible manner.

However, Bloomberg mentioned the foreign representative criticized the export curbs the United States had implemented. Yi asserted America shouldn’t create new obstacles for relations between the two countries, declaring the US needed to put an end to its suppression and containment of the communist Asian nation.
