Virtual Summit between Biden and Xi, Taiwan-Related Tensions – World

Navalny Staff: 'His Liberation Passes World Leaders' - World

“I’m glad to see an old friend”: Xi greets Joe Biden on the other side of the screen for violating Jinping protocol, Sitting in the Roosevelt Room in the White House. Not long ago, the US President inaugurated the much-anticipated Virtual Summit with the leader in Beijing, underlining how he and Xi have known each other for so long and how their personal relationship has always been constructed with very few formal gestures and words. .

In short, the urge to melt comes up immediately, as reported in Washington and Beijing, which is about three hours of face-to-face and “frank and frank” tones. “We have a responsibility to handle the competition between our two countries responsibly, not only in front of our people, but in front of the whole world,” Biden said. The development of the relationship between the United States and China but underlines that this is possible only through mutual respect. After the jubilation and declarations of intent, the two leaders made no concessions. The White House tenant said he was concerned about what the U.S. considers human rights violations in Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong. He spoke in support of the US Alliance, but said that maintaining some independence was not the answer. Hence the Taiwan problem. Biden has warned the Chinese president against unilateral actions that could change the status quo and disrupt peace and stability in the region.

Reiterating the sanctity of the ‘One China’ principle, Xi’s response was harsh: “Taiwan seeks independence but plays by fire,” he said bluntly. Again: “Once the red line is crossed we will have to take decisive action”. Clear, vague message. When the Chinese President said that Biden would fully demonstrate his leadership in respect of the principles of mutual respect, peaceful co-operation and win-win cooperation, he would urge US policy towards China to “bring US policy back to a rational and pragmatic path”. For both sides.

Democracy is “rich and colorful” and there is no specific model for the whole world. If a country is democratic or not, its people must say so. His U.S. opponent is Joe Biden. “We are ready to discuss human rights issues on the basis of mutual respect, but we do not approve of their use in interfering in the internal affairs of other countries,” Xinhua said.
