President United StateAnd Joe Bidenand its Chinese counterpart, Xi JinpingThe US government announced on Monday that the meeting will hypothetically meet “before the end of the year,” at a date that has not yet been officially announced.

Xi has not attended meetings abroad in nearly two years, since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and will also not be present at the upcoming G20 leaders’ meeting in Rome, The New York Times notes.

The virtual meeting was announced after US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan met with China’s top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, in Zurich for six hours.

During the meeting, Yang urged the two countries to work together, according to Xinhua.

“when China And the United States cooperates, both countries and the world will benefit; Xinhua quoted Xinhua as saying when China and the United States face a confrontation, the two countries and the world will suffer greatly.”

According to Agence France-Presse, he was reported to have said that Beijing “confirms the positive comments on China-US relations” made by Biden recently.

Sullivan’s trip reaffirms improved communications between Beijing and Washington, with Biden calling for the erection of “safety barriers” to the growing tension between the two powers, which in the face of China’s aggressive stance toward Taiwan, heightens the nations’ decision not to sell nuclear weapons.

On Monday, US trade representative Catherine Tay said she would soon speak with her Chinese counterpart as there was still a huge trade dispute with no end in sight.

After the Zurich meeting, the White House expected Sullivan to visit Brussels and Paris, where he would “report his meeting with Director Yang to our European allies and partners.”

Biden, who has known Xi for years, has had two phone conversations with the Chinese leader since taking office. The second, lasting 90 minutes, happened last month.
