Today’s News

U.S. President Joe Biden has reportedly declared that he has held the highest-level talks with the Chinese leadership in the past few months, adding that China’s economic wobbles have indicated that it would not lead to a Taiwan invasion.

Biden claims that he has met with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s No.2, Chinese Premier Li Qiang, at the annual G20 summit in New Delhi. The talks were the highest-level meeting between the two powers in nearly 10 months since Biden and Xi spoke at last year’s G20 in Indonesia.

Li, who became premier in March, attended the gathering of world leaders in place of Xi. The two leaders were not expected to hold talks at the G20 but unscripted encounters at summits are common.

The China and U.S. world leaders have been trying to thaw frosty relations this year after a spat over a suspected Chinese spy balloon that allegedly flew over U.S. territory, while fears of an economic slowdown have gripped Beijing.

“The only existential threat humanity faces, even things more frightening than a nuclear war, is global warming,” Biden said Sunday during a news conference in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Some scientists say global warming is linked to more severe weather events such as hurricanes, but there are no near-term projections that the world will become totally uninhabitable at the moment.
