A senior White House official has said a virtual meeting between US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping is set to take place by the end of this year. As he added, Washington and Beijing have reached a substantial agreement in the negotiations.
News of the planned talks between Joe Biden and Xi Jinping was announced after he met with US President Jak Sullivan, the US president’s national security adviser, with his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi. Sullivan and Jicci talked for six hours in Zurich on Wednesday. The US did not release details of the meeting. The official Chinese news agency Xinhua said the conversation was complete and honest, with Chinese and US officials agreeing to properly manage their differences and avoid conflict.
Details of a future meeting between US and Chinese leaders are still being developed, according to the PA agency, which cites a senior White House official.
As President of the United States, Biden spoke on the phone twice. According to an AP source, the idea of a virtual meeting that would allow leaders to see each other came after Biden C mentioned in a recent interview that he would like to see them again.
