    On Tuesday’s Backchat: As mixed signals emerge from the latest round of meetings between Chinese and American diplomats, we’ll be exploring whether Sino-US ties are starting to stabilise after months of angry rhetoric.

    The meetings began badly with Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng telling visiting US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman that bilateral relations had reached a “stalemate”, only to end on a marginally more positive note after the US said it did not “seek conflict” with China.

    But both sides remain at odds over many issues – including the tit-for-tat sanctions imposed over Hong Kong last week. So is there any sign relations will improve? Or do we have to accept that uneasy ties between the US and China is the new normal?

    Also on Tuesday’s show, why did it take police so long to smash two illegal car parking syndicates in Jordan?

    US elections; Animal cruelty

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, US elections, and animal abuse.
    Some of the United States' biggest and closest allies quickly congratulated Democrat Joe Biden on Saturday, recognising his presidential election victory even though Donald Trump, with whom several have had rocky relations, had yet to concede.
    Meanwhile, In his unsuccessful campaign for re-election, US President Donald Trump repeatedly warned that a victory for Joe Biden would be a win for China and that Beijing would "own America"; Was he right?
    What are the implications for Sino-US relations, and for us in Hong Kong? Will Biden
    treat the city differently?
    From 9:15-9:30 we'll be discussing animal abuse following four recent cases including dogs, a cat and a wild boar.
