WASHINGTON (AP) – President Joe Biden spoke with Chinese Xi Jinping on Thursday amid growing growing frustration on the part of the United States that high-level alliances between the two leaders’ top advisers did not break the Biden president’s first move.
Biden initiated the call by Xi, the second between the two leaders since Biden took office. It comes just in time there is no need for thorny problems between the two countries, including violations of Chinese secrecy laws, how Beijing handled the coronavirus epidemic and what the White House has called China’s “oppressive and unfair trade”.
But Biden’s goal in the 90-minute summit was not about any crisis and was simply a discussion of the future of US-China relations.
In a statement, the White House said in a statement that “the two leaders have discussed in detail the areas in which we want to meet, and where our interests, ideas, and perspectives differ.”
The White House believes that the two sides can work together on a range of issues – including climate change and nuclear deterrence on the Korean Peninsula – despite significant differences.
Beijing, however, has backed down against US pressure and added that it could remain divided until Biden criticized what he saw as Chinese.
Xi in the call appeared to agree with some of the complaints, telling Biden that the US government’s actions in China caused “serious problems” in relations, reports Xinhua News Agency.
“This is not really helpful for the two people,” the Chinese leader said, according to Xinhua.
“The struggle between China and the US will bring disaster to all countries and the world,” Xi said.
Xi said the two sides should work together for climate change, disease prevention, economic recovery and more, Xinhua said.
Prior to the call, the chief executive officer said the White House was not satisfied with the initial negotiations with the Chinese.
The official, who was not allowed to comment publicly and did not speak, said White House officials hoped Xi hearing from Biden could be beneficial.
A White House official said Biden had told Xi that he had no intention of pursuing a policy of coercion against China on human rights issues, trade and other territories that believe China is acting in violation of foreign policy.
Excellence in the beginning has been well known with each side hitting the other with criticism.
Last week, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned Biden’s envoy, John Kerry, that the relationship between the US and China was deteriorating. it can undermine coherence in climate change. Wang told Kerry, who is traveling to Tianjin to discuss climate issues with Chinese counterparts, via video, saying the agreement could not be separated from full relations and called on the United States to take action to improve their relations, according to the Foreign Minister.
In July, Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman we have met a long list of needs and concerns, including cases that the US tried to impose on and undermined China’s development. Deputy Foreign Minister Xie Feng urged the US “to change their extremist views and dangerous views.”
In March, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and White House security adviser Jake Sullivan were great exchange and Chinese Communist Party chief financial officer Yang Jiechi when he met with Chinese officials in Anchorage. At the summit, Yang criticized the US for failing to address its human rights problems and condemned what he called “American fraud.”
Officials are skeptical that some of the speculations at these conventions will be played out in the media rather than sent to the White House. With this in mind, Biden also highlighted the need for the two leaders to be able to discuss privacy and clarify what they are leading, the official said.
Biden from the beginning of his presidency wants to install focusing on China, bringing together allies to talk together about Beijing’s human rights record, its business practices and its courageous military actions that have undermined US alliance in the Pacific. They see Beijing as the most important economic competition in the United States and a major national security concern.
But the president has also said he hopes his long-term working relationship with Xi, which began when he was vice-president of Barack Obama, could provide benefits for the two countries in tandem with other challenges. The two have spent a long time inviting each other to remember their time together as they were both vice presidents, the chief executive said.
The White House said the summons had agreed to hold “open and transparent” discussions on international issues and where there is agreement.
