About the Issue

The meeting between President Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping took place on Wednesday just south of San Francisco with little to nothing to show for the year’s worth of American attempts at diplomacy.  In many ways the talks appear to leave both countries in the same position they were in November 2022 when the two leaders met in Indonesia during the G20 Summit. 

The only things the two leaders appeared to agree to were to simply continue to talk… even if Beijing has often failed to meet even that low bar.
