Biden and Xi agree to meet during call that focused on tension with Taiwan, economic anxiety

Tensions over Taiwan, Russia’s war in Ukraine and clashes over the economy dominated a call between President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping on Thursday.

The planned call between the leaders –  their first in more than four months – comes as the U.S. seeks to regain a competitive edge over China and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi considers a visit to Taiwan.

The call lasted more than two hours, according to the White House, reflecting the long and thorny agenda.

Xi and Biden agreed to meet face-to-face at a time that has yet to be determined, a U.S. official who briefed reporters after the call said.
