Yang met Tillerson at the State Department on Thursday.
 
During their meeting, Yang said that the two sides have decided to hold the second round of the Diplomatic and Security Dialogue in China during the first half of the year.
 
He added a second round of Law Enforcement and Cyber Security Dialogue, the Social and Cultural Issues Dialogue, and the Comprehensive Economic Dialogue will also be held within the year.
 
Yang said China and the United States should keep close contact and make good use of their four high-level dialogue channels to further boost ties. 
 
The four high-level dialogues were established during the Mar-a-Lago meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his U.S. counterpart, Donald Trump, at Palm Beach in the southeastern U.S. state of Florida in April 2017.
 
The visiting Chinese State Councilor also said that China and the United States could address their bilateral trade issues through more open markets and "making a bigger cake of cooperation."
 
Yang added he hoped the U.S. side could meet China halfway to ensure the stable and healthy development of bilateral ties in the long run. 
 
He said that positive China-U.S. ties are in the best interests of both peoples and the world.
 
For his part, Tillerson said the United States remains committed to the one-China policy.
 
He added the U.S. side is willing to work with China to solve bilateral economic and trade issues in a more effective manner.
