Chinese President Xi Jinping arrives in US, to meet Joe Biden on APEC sidelines SHARE ARTICLE

SAN FRANCISCO, November 15

Chinese leader Xi Jinping has landed in San Francisco for talks with US President Joe Biden that may ease friction between the two superpowers over military conflicts, drug-trafficking and artificial intelligence.

However, deep progress on the vast differences separating them may have to wait for another day. Officials on both sides of the Pacific have set expectations low as Biden and Xi are set to discuss Taiwan, the South China Sea, Israel-Hamas war, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, North Korea and human rights — areas where the leaders have been unable to resolve long-standing disagreements.
