Biden and Xi plan a US-China virtual summit before year’s end


 The US and China have agreed in principle for their presidents to hold a virtual meeting before year’s end, a senior US administration official said this week, after high-level talks meant to improve communication between the two big powers. The closed-door meeting in Switzerland between US national security adviser Jake Sullivan and China’s top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, was their first face-to-face encounter since March.

The White House said Sullivan raised concerns about Chinese actions in the South China Sea (called the East Sea in Vietnam), as well as Hong Kong and Xinjiang issues.

At the end of the day, however, both Beijing and Washington said the talks, which lasted six hours, were constructive and candid.
