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.
