Biden "Of course" From meeting with a Chinese colleague if he attends the G20 meeting in Bali

US President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that he would “definitely” meet with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping if the latter attended the G20 summit in November in Bali, Indonesia.

Asked about a possible meeting, he said, “If (Xi) is there, I’m sure I’ll see him.” This is happening against the backdrop of an escalating confrontation between China and the United States.

The two presidents spoke to each other several times after the election of Joe Biden, but have not met since the inauguration of the President of the United States.

And every conversation between them ends with a promise to keep open the high-level channel of communication between Washington and Beijing, without pushing the two superpowers through the many points of contention between them.

On the contrary, tensions between the two countries continue to escalate, especially over Taiwan.

On Friday, the United States announced a $1.1 billion arms sale to Taiwan. And he demanded that China, which considers Taiwan part of its territory, to abandon the deal, threatening to take “countermeasures.”
