The White House has announced a conversation between U.S. President Joe Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in the coming weeks.
“We do expect that the President and President Xi will have the opportunity to engage over the course of the next few weeks. I can’t put a particular timeframe on it. It’s not going to be immediately after the G7,” US national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters in Germany.
China will be a major topic of discussion at the summit this week, he said. “We’re not looking to divide the world into rival blocks and make every country choose” he said. “We want to stand for a set of principles that are fair to everybody. And we want to ensure that we’re working with like-minded partners to hold China accountable to adhere to those rules.”
