Biden and Xi to meet in San Francisco

Presidents Joe Biden of the USA and Xi Jingping of China are set to meet on November 15 in San Francisco to discuss the easing of military tensions in the South Chin Sea region and US export restrictions. The meeting between the two leaders shall be their first in over a year.

The summit comes after bouts of Chinese agression regarding Taiwan and the South China Sea. Disputes over shipping routes between China and the Phillippines, a former US territory, resulted in tensions rising.

 A press release from the White House stated that the seeks to continue discussions on “the U.S.-PRC bilateral relationship, the continued importance of maintaining open lines of communication, and a range of regional and global issues.”

Xi visited then President Donald Trump in 2017 at his Mar-a-lago mansion where Trump found a “great chemistry” between himself and the Chinese leader. But, according to Nectar Gan of CNN, the two nations now seem like “a distrustful couple on the verge of divorce.”   

The meeting between Biden and Xi aims to improve relations between China and the US as the two leaders set to represent their nations at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference in San Francisco from November 11-17.

Taiwan will be an issue of top interest to the US as Chinese activity in the region has been pertinent. Following the placement of Chinese warships in Taiwan in spring of 2023, tensions have been taken to heights not seen for some time. Biden will look to assure Taiwan of US support while aiming to avoid any new conflict. The violence in Gaza and Ukraine will no doubt dictate the tone of the meeting heavily.
