On Tuesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping called for collaborative actions with the US. He has told Prez Biden about the necessity of both the nations to act in collaboration with each other in terms of combating hurdles like climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Media sources have stated, “Xi expressed his readiness to work with President Biden to build consensus and take active steps to move China-US relations forward in a positive direction.”

Xi believed that it was the joint responsibility of leaders from both nations to advance the development and global peace. This is the first interaction between the Chinese and US presidents since Biden was elected to office in January. Jinping in the virtual meeting has pointed out the fact that the ‘global village’ of humanity is passing through difficult times with a significant number of challenges.

Xi has conveyed to Biden, “As the world’s two largest economies and permanent members of the UN Security Council, China and the US need to increase communication and cooperation, each run their domestic affairs well and, at the same time, shoulder their share of international responsibilities, and work together to advance the noble cause of world peace and development.”

The President of China further believed, “This is the shared desire of the people of the two countries and around the world, and the joint mission of Chinese and American leaders.” Sources have stated that Jinping looked forward to carrying US-China relations in a positive direction. Beijing is likely to ask Washington to withdraw its policies on the chunk of land which China claims to be a breakaway region.

Other issues including Afghanistan and bilateral trade are expected to be discussed in the meeting. Xi is being accompanied by top-notch diplomats and politicians of the country in the virtual meet.
