President Biden is set to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping in San Francisco during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.

The White House emphasized the importance of the meeting and characterized it as “intense diplomacy” and a “tough conversation.”

The goal is to re-establish trust and communication between the U.S. and China. Sino-U.S. relations have been strained due to various issues, including the presence of Chinese spy craft in U.S. airspace and the Taiwan Independence issue.

“We’ve been talking about it. The president said he’s looking forward to meeting with President Xi and so [I’m] not going to get into details about this meeting that’s going to happen […] next month,” said White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“It’s going to be in San Francisco, it’s going to be a constructive meeting, the president’s looking forward to it.”

“Our policy and how we move forward with China hasn’t changed. This is intense competition — that we have said that we want to move forward with China — and intense competition means intense diplomacy, that’s what you’re going to see. That’s what the president is going to be doing and having a tough conversation but important conversation.”

The recent conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East have also complicated relations.
