WASHINGTON, Dec 1 (Reuters) – The United States and the European Union are expected to issue a “robust” joint statement from a Thursday meeting on their approach to China, reflecting an increasing convergence between them on the challenges posed by Beijing, a senior official of the U.S. State Department said.

Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and Secretary General of the European External Action Service Stefano Sannino will co-chair a second U.S.-EU Dialogue on China on Thursday and high-level consultations on the Indo-Pacific on Friday, the State Department said.
