Following a visit by China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi to Washington, promises of a meeting between US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping have been made. The meeting is expected to take place at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco in November. While the meeting has not been confirmed by the White House, a statement from a meeting between Wang Yi and US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan indicated that both sides were working towards a meeting. The last time Xi and Biden met was at the G20 summit in Bali last year. During Wang’s visit to Washington, discussions were held on various topics including the Israel-Hamas conflict, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the presidential election in Taiwan. Both China and the US expressed their intent to address global challenges and improve their relationship. However, they remain at odds over Taiwan, with Beijing trying to influence the upcoming elections on the island. The possibility of a military conflict between China and Taiwan could draw in the US, which has pledged to support Taiwan’s defense.
