A day before her arrival, Wang had warned China would not accept the United States taking a "superior" position in the relationship.Senior U.S. officials on Saturday outlined Sherman's expected position during the talks, saying the United States welcomes competition with Beijing but would insist on a level playing field and "guardrails" to avoid conflicts. headtopics.com

Ties have continued to deteriorate since, including a series of tit-for-tat sanctions and diplomatic barbs that have overshadowed the talks in Tianjin.Sherman is expected to continue with the talks in Tianjin on Monday before travelling to Geneva to head a U.S. delegation at nuclear arms control talks with Russia on Wednesday.
