Chinese media, citing President Xi Jinping, have reported that Beijing is willing to cooperate with the United States in addressing global challenges. According to him, both sides can manage their differences, signalling a potential for collaboration in tackling worldwide issues.
A state-affiliated Chinese media outlet known as “Global Times” has reported that the President of China, in a letter to the annual dinner of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations in New York, has written that whether the United States and China can forge the right path or not is of great importance to the world.
According to Reuters, President Xi Jinping’s request for joint responses to significant global challenges is a win-win cooperation opportunity that has arisen just ahead of Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s upcoming visit to the United States in the coming days.
Wang Yi’s visit to the United States, which commences on Thursday, October 26th and continues until Saturday, October 28th, marks the highest-level in-person interaction preceding the anticipated meeting between President Joe Biden and Xi Jinping at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco in November.
Chinese media, in anticipation of Wang Yi’s visit to the United States, have suggested that this trip paves the way for a potential meeting between Biden and Xi in November.
According to Global Times, Chinese observers believe that Wang Yi’s visit facilitates the path to a potential meeting between Biden and his Chinese counterpart. Nevertheless, Washington must work to address Beijing’s concerns and demonstrate its sincerity in the process.
