Big politics at the GXNUMX: Biden is going to talk with Xi Jinping, and Rishi Sunak is going to have a showdown with Putin
The war on the territory of Ukraine will be one of the main topics during the meeting between US President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping during the G20 summit.
The face-to-face talks will take place at a time when relations between the countries have fallen to their lowest level in decades. The presidents will meet on the Indonesian island of Bali ahead of the G20 summit. According to Biden, he previously spent a lot of time with Xi Jinping and "had frank conversations with him." Writes about it Sky News.
The President of the United States hopes to build a framework for relations between countries and ensure that there are rules in place to limit competition between them. At the same time, Biden does not plan to make any fundamental concessions during the meeting with his colleague and wants them to lay out their own "red lines".
It is noted that Biden will also be "undisputed" in his defense of Ukraine. China, meanwhile, avoids criticism of Russia, but continues to refrain from supplying weapons to the occupying country.
According to to Reuters, both leaders know each other well, having traveled over 17 miles together and spent 78 hours in meetings. The current presidents traveled to the US and China in 2011 and 2012.

Skylar Mastro.
Another expert argues that China and the United States, as a result of the meeting of leaders, can restore some working mechanisms for bilateral consultations on trade and other issues.
