“President Biden concluded his discussion with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China( PRC) at 1050 am ET,” the pool said. Xi Jinping held a phone discussion with US President Biden at the request of the ultimate, the state media outlet Global Times reported. This was the alternate talk since they had a videotape call in March.
The phone call lasted about two hours, and the two sides had an in- depth exchange of views, the report added.
Their fifth call since President Biden took office last time came amid heightened pressures among the geopolitical rivals.
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is considering a trip to Taiwan during the congressional recess in August that would make her the highest- ranking American politician since 1997 to visit the tone- governed islet.
Indeed the US President cast mistrustfulness on a trip reportedly planned by House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan coming month. Biden said the US military believes it isn’t a good idea for Pelosi to travel to Taiwan as planned.
“The military thinks it’s not a good idea right now,” Biden said on Wednesday as quoted by the White House press pool. China has advised of “resolute countermeasures” if Pelosi proceeds with crossing its “red line.”
