Chinese Premier Li Qiang told US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Friday that Beijing “can see a rainbow” after a period of fraught ties, as the two sat down for talks aimed at stabilising their countries’ relationship.

“Yesterday, the moment you arrived at our airport and left the plane, we saw a rainbow,” Li told Yellen. “I think it can apply to the US-China relationship too: after experiencing a round of winds and rains, we surely can see a rainbow.”
