BEIJING: Treasury secretary Janet Yellen on Sunday said she agreed Washington will listen to Chinese complaints about security-related curbs on US technology exports and might “respond to unintended consequences” as she ended a visit to Beijing aimed at reviving strained relations.

She said the Biden administration wants to “avoid unnecessary repercussions” but gave no indication of possible changes.A key Chinese complaint is limits on access to processor chips and other US technology on security grounds that threaten to hamper the ruling Communist Party’s development of smartphones, artificial intelligence and other industries.
