San Francisco, November 17 (Language) The recent summit between US President Joe Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping seems like a success and reflects a small but noticeable change in the relations between the two countries. This has been said in the reports in American media.
Biden and Jinping met on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conference in San Francisco on Wednesday.
During the four-hour meeting between the two leaders, they agreed to crack down on the drug ‘fentanyl’ by China, restore military communications and begin discussions on artificial intelligence.
A day after the meeting, The New York Times reported, “When President Biden met with President Xi Jinping on Wednesday, there was a small but noticeable change in relations between the two countries. “Both countries were engaged in condemnation of each other and imposition of sanctions for most of the last few years.”
However, ‘Washington Post’ has expressed a different view on the summit.
According to its editorial, “Relations between the US and China have reached such a low that President Biden’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday was seen as a success. Despite the announcement of formal agreements, these talks seem like a matter of course. “Regular dialogue is better than conflict.”
According to the editorial, “It is important to resume a face-to-face meeting between the presidents of the US and China. Biden later told reporters that the two leaders had agreed to call each other if needed.
