In San Francisco (California), a meeting of US President Joe Biden with President Xi Jinping was held.
Negotiations were held as part of the APEC summit.
“personal discussions there is no replacement. I always considered our discussions straight and frank, and I always appreciated them,” the head of the White House said before the meeting.
According to Bayden, Washington and Beijing must ensure that the competition between the parties “does not develop into conflict.” We must always responsibly manage competition, “said the American leader.
On the eve of the head of the White House, he expressed the hope that his meeting with the leader of China will become a “step towards normalizing” relations between the two countries.
According to him, normalization includes “the opportunity to pick up the phone and talk when a crisis arises, and guarantee that the armies are in contact with each other”.
The last time Joe Biden and Xi Jinping met at the G20 summit in Indonesia in November 2022.
