In this sense, the diplomat pointed out that aside from both, Xi Jinping will hold meetings with his peers from France, Emmanuel Macron; United States, Joe Biden; Senegal, Macky Sall and Argentina, Alberto Fernández, among other leaders.
The next meeting between Xi and Biden would be the first in person after the US elections as it will take place in the midst of a context tempered by the exacerbation of contradictions due to Taiwan.
The head of the White House specified that “when we speak I want to define what our red lines are, understand what he considers to be critical national interests of China, what I consider to be critical interests of the United States, determine whether or not they conflict.”
This would be the second outing for the Chinese head of state in 2022 after he participated last September in the 22nd meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Samarkand when he visited Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.
