Xi Jinping writes to ex-Starbucks boss amid strained US ties

Jan 14, 2021 15:00 IST

China's President Xi Jinping wrote a letter to former Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz asking him to help in promoting trade between Washington and Beijing in a rare missive to a foreign business figure, state media reported. China will 'provide a broader space for companies from all over the world, including Starbucks and other American companies, to develop in China', Xi wrote in his letter. It's not made clear why state media published the letter. However, it comes in a time when relations between the superpowers have reached a nadir with bitter disputes over trade, tech, security and rights.
