Washington:

Joe Biden said Friday he was “proud” of Secretary of State Antony Blinken after the opening of tense talks between American and Chinese diplomats in their first face-to-face meeting since the US president took office.

The two-day negotiations in Alaska are aimed at addressing a relationship that was pitched into turmoil during Donald Trump’s presidency, and they got off to a fractious start Thursday as the two sides traded barbs.

“I am proud of the secretary of state,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
