Biden, Xi Jinping's 2 Hour 17

Minute Phone Call On Taiwan,

Trade Dispute

On Thursday, President Joe Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping had a lengthy phone conversation on their efforts to contain the superpower rivalry, the rising tensions surrounding Taiwan, the ongoing trade dispute, and other topics.
The call reportedly lasted two hours and seventeen minutes, according to the White House. Later, a remark was anticipated.

Even though this was Biden's fifth conversation with Xi since taking office a year and a half ago, it has gotten more difficult to hide the rising hostility between the two nations.
Taiwan is gradually increasing the risk of a full-scale clash between Beijing and Washington, which are already involved in a trade war, and neither side is showing any signs of giving in.

According to John Kirby, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, tensions over China's aggressive, coercive tactics in the Indo-Pacific will be a prominent concern.

The island, which Beijing claims is a part of China but which has an independent democratic government, may be visited by Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House of Representatives and an ardent admirer of Biden.

Despite the fact that US leaders visit Taiwan on a regular basis, which is only connected to the Chinese mainland by a short stretch of sea, Beijing regards Pelosi's visit as a major provocation. She is permitted to use military transportation because she will eventually succeed in Barack Obama as President of the United States.

General Mark Milley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters that if Pelosi seeks "military support," "we will take the appropriate actions to ensure a safe, safe conduct of their business."

The Pelosi issue is only the tip of US officials' concerns, as they believe Xi is considering using force to seize control of democratic Taiwan.
