Biden speaks with Chinese President Xi Jinping

President Joe Biden spoke on the phone Tuesday with Chinese President Xi Jinping, their first conversation since meeting last November in California.

The two leaders were set to speak about climate change, the economic relationship between the U.S. and China as well as progress on artificial intelligence and countering illegal drug flow, such as fentanyl, according to a senior administration official.

Officials downplayed expectations ahead of Tuesday's call, describing it as a "check in" amid the administration's efforts to "maintain regular open lines of communication to responsibly manage competition and prevent unintended consequences."

Though the call between Biden and Xi Jinping lasted 105 minutes, an administration official told ABC News, longer than previous phone conversations between the two leaders.

When Biden and Xi met in Woodside outside San Francisco last year, both men agreed to keep talking as they face global challenges. Their phone conversation on Tuesday, a senior administration official said, was about "finding a chance for the two leaders to talk through the tough issues."..............

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Most of the call went something like this I'm sure;

Biden: "Yeah. I can do that but it's gonna cost you."

Xi: "No problem! We have plenty of $$$ from selling you people the junk we make."
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

China sends warplanes, boats around Taiwan following phone call between Xi and Biden
The phone call was the first between the two since mid-2022 and was expected to touch on the Taiwan issue
By Timothy H.J. Nerozzi Fox News
Published April 3, 2024 8:02am EDT

Dozens of Chinese warplanes and multiple naval ships were reported around the island of Taiwan this week, the largest coordinated display this year.

At least 30 planes and nine ships were detected in Taiwan’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) by the country's Ministry of National Defense (MND).

"30 PLA aircraft and 9 PLAN vessels operating around Taiwan were detected up until 6 a.m. (UTC+8) today. 20 of the aircraft entered Taiwan’s northern, middle line, and SW ADIZ," the Taiwanese MND announced via social media. "[Republic of China Armed Forces] have monitored the situation and employed appropriate force to respond."

"The Republic of China" is the official name of Taiwan, compared to its mainland, communist contemporary, the People's Republic of China.
