This is the first summit between the heads of state of China and the United States since Biden took power.

US President Joe Biden (Joe Biden) and Chinese President Xi Jinping had a three-and-a-half-hour video meeting on Tuesday (November 16) Beijing time. This is the first summit between the two heads of state since Biden took power.

The atmosphere of the meeting was generally friendly, and both leaders tried to use a moderate tone. Biden told Xi Jinping in his opening remarks that the two countries need to establish “some common sense guardrails”, while Xi Jinping referred to Biden as an “old friend.”

However, the US White House and China’s official news agency Xinhua issued separate briefings after the talks, showing that the two sides are still “talking about each other” on several long-standing controversial issues, including Biden’s violations of China in Xinjiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong. Human rights expressed concern, while Xi Jinping referred to US support for Taiwan as “playing with fire.”

Although observers generally believed that there was no substantial breakthrough in the talks, senior US officials revealed that the two sides agreed to conduct arms control negotiations. One day after the talks, the two countries also announced that they would give each other’s media reporters more freedom.
