The meeting between the leaders of the world's two largest economies is happening on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit, which is being held this year on the resort island of Bali.

Leaders were expected to discuss simmering tensions between China and Taiwan, a self-governed island that Xi has a strong desire to bring under mainland control, Russia's war on Ukraine, which will soon enter its ninth month.

China has been irked by the United States' close relationship with Taiwan. Beijing responded to an August visit by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the island by firing missiles into the Taiwan Strait. The nation has also been put in an undeniably a difficult position by Russia's war in Ukraine.

"I'm committed to keeping the lines of communications open between you and me personally, but also our governments across the board," Biden told Xi on Monday, emphasizing both countries share a responsibility to "manage our differences, prevent competition from becoming anything ever to near conflict, and to find ways to work together on urgent global issues that require our mutual cooperation."

Xi responded by saying, "The world has come to a crossroads. Where to go from here. This is a question that is not only on our mind but also on the mind of all countries. The world expects that China and the United States will properly handle the relationship.”

Biden and Xi last met in 2017 in Davos, Switzerland on one Biden's last days as vice president. Since becoming president in 2021, Biden had spoken with Xi by phone video five times, prior to their meeting on Monday.

    1. @Gihan
      “I’m not allowed to answer questions!”
      -Joe Biden

      He literally has said that. Who’s telling “the president” he’s not allowed to answer questions?

    1. @Gihan
      Biden dropped out of the presidential race in 1987 due to lies and plagiarizing speeches. He hasn’t stopped since then.

    2. @Pamela Lee truth like ” injecting bleach will cure it”
      truth like Donnie was never friends with ole Jeffie Epstein.

      Donald trump ran a teen beauty pageant while he was best buddies with the guy that owned a pedo island….

      lol yeah truth like that?

  1. “Hey..where’s hunter and my last check you promised for brokering your energy deal”… (psssst.. and killing US energy)

    1. Stop trying to make us look weak you Russian troll. Concentrate and trying to get that troll cash worth nothing

    2. @Glitter and Suds ASMR Let’s see.. Would a “Russian troll” be pointing out democrats who sold Putin US held uranium interests, approved his fossil fuel pipeline (while killing them for Americans), take Gasprom and other Putin energy super pac contributions (open secrets), the democrat president’s son INEXPLICABLY getting 3.5 million in wire transfers from Moscow billionaire oligarchs (I’ll provide the name if you want).. etc etc etc… OR… OR!!! Would the “Russian troll” be combing the comment section to intercept comments, to distract from these facts? (We’ll let others vote on that)… but when you NEVER return to challenge this, since I DM’d it back to you, all will no the answer to that.. right?

    3. @Debbie I used to like our two sided politics. Repubs vs Dems seemed to keep our politicians on their toes in service to their constituents. It’s different now, we are divided. Some of the points you make are true, some are talking points of the right. They assign blame to each other now vs it’s really all of them that profiteer within war, and now our division. We won’t be able to stop their wars until we cooperate, both our leaders and us. It’s all a game of getting the masses behind their decisions. They take what they can wherever they go, all those with affluence and power

    4. @Glitter and Suds ASMR I agree with everything you say, and thanks.. The only wrinkle is we have the majority of a western press culture that protects and promotes (even invents).. one side’s propaganda ..
      I’m not a republican, trump supporter, either,but I don’t have to waste my time digging into their candidates and policies, because we have a gazillion left wing journalists (many anti American) combing through every aspect of their candidates… (what we expect from a free press).. Only they became a state run media for the other side…
      Thanks for the reply…

  2. Biden in charge 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 nothing to worry about 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  3. damn….”looking forward to G20 meetings tomorrow, we are going to be talking to taking on the very issues that matter to people’s live I DON”T WANT TO HEAR, but also our partner and allies means tackling the suffering that Ruusia’s aggression….. ” damn…. don’t you care about people’s live, mr Joe?

    1. This post shows the level of hatred Americans have towards Asians and the level of stupidity of many Americans at the same time! LOL It’s an Indonesian temple, likely modeled after Hindu culture from India!

    2. There should be 2 red laser dots on BOTH their heads in the thumbnail. THAT would be worth talking about. Both these fools need to be 6′ under

  4. I will forever be indebted to you you’ve changed my whole life continue to preach about your name for the world to hear you’ve saved me froma huge
    financial debt with just little investment, thanks so much incredible mrs helena

    1. @Helena Reid Wow I’ m just shock someone mentioned incredible mrs helena I thought I’m the only one trading with her

  5. It sickens me to see and hear the President of the USA read and slur his speech and act as though he is in a different world. Im so disappointed in our country for ever electing him.

  6. President Biden Master Sergeant Brightwell also works at Electrolux I work at the oak ridge Nuclear Power facility from time to time I don’t do it very often but there is a cable that I need it’s hanging on by a thread and I can’t take it off and I’ve only got a cable that will hold for an hour and 45 minutes that’s as long as it’ll hold and that isn’t long enough to take that cable apart to make a new one if anybody has an extra cable for that specific engine in the oak ridge Nuclear Power facility please contact the oak ridge Nuclear Power facility at the Tennessee valley authority

  7. Even if you have a cable for that engine that doesn’t have the end I’m the only one that can go in there and change that cable because the man that actually stript the cable the first time and had it connected the way it is connected now only it’s stripped down further and stripped down so far that I can’t stretch it anymore he died it took them 28 years of testing people before I passed the test for the oak ridge Nuclear Power facility at the Tennessee valley authority even if the cable doesn’t have an end to connect it I can strip it the same way I’ve got this one stripped and I can connect it I can line it and I can connect it and I can take the other one off and have new ones made but I can’t just make new ones because I don’t know what material it’s made of because all of the other cables don’t work none of them I have one that will only hold for an hour and 45 minutes anybody

  8. When all you are arguing and fighting about nuclear weapons please remember this a lightning bolt hit the 4-month-old marvel and it went at Sonic and caused all this damage now if they hadn’t been hit by enough lightning to run the Hoover dam and everything that the Hoover dam runs then the marvel wouldn’t have created an atomic plume if somebody hadn’t stolen it and it was sitting in the leaded concrete vault room that I left it in that wouldn’t have happened either but because it has happened I want you to stop and think about what one of your nuclear missiles will do just one of them and it won’t just be to you it’ll be to everybody because it’s going to create Atomic radioactive rain so everybody that has nuclear missiles and nuclear weapons please please think about the fact that the four month old marvel was hit by lightning and how much damage that has done how much 62 marvels that are the size of peashooter marbles just did

  9. Most beginners believe that investing in crypto and stock is all about holding till it rises, with the recent crash in the market and recession. We should know that long term price predictions are very difficult to achieve. It’s better to trade short term and make profit.

    1. I don’t trade on my own anymore, invest with a professional assigned by a crypto company that trades and returns profits on weekly basis without extra fees attached. She is Mrs Deanna Kathrine

    2. With an initial investment of 6,000$, she has helped me grow my portfolio massively with weekly returns within a short period.

    3. This is really good. I’ve made a lot of fall with my portfolio but ever since made Mrs Deanna Kathrine whose my personal trader and my account manager the story is now different. I’ve made a lot of profit with her guardians.

  10. An action is earning money. Money management is a behaviour. Increasing wealth is learning. This is the principle.

    1. I strongly agree with you guys. Margarets team is the best. My funds are safe and ROI is always sent directly to my external wallet exchange

    2. Coincidentally i met Margaret in a conference in LA. He shared me his views on the market and his strategies were really mind blowing. I really recommend him

    3. Now i have 6.88btc in less than a year. It is a wonderful experience i guarantee strongly n commend him too. Glad to see all sevwral beneficiaries from his works .
