China and the US will hold their first social and people-to-people dialogue on September 28 in Washington DC, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Kang said at a press briefing on Monday.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong will co-chair the dialogue with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The two sides will have an in-depth exchange of views on bilateral exchanges and cooperation in relevant areas, Lu said.

China would like to work with the US toward a positive outcome from the dialogue, Lu added.

The meeting is one of four high-level dialogues established during the Mar-a-Lago meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump in Florida in April.

At that meeting, the two sides agreed to establish a high-level dialogue mechanism, including a diplomatic and security dialogue, comprehensive economic dialogue, law enforcement and cybersecurity dialogue, and the social and people-to-people dialogue.
