Joe Biden and Xi Jinping’s first meeting as heads of state made clear that neither the U.S. nor China is prepared to negotiate their way to a lower risk of conflict in Taiwan.

Financial Times

There is a long list of other points of tension, including China’s human-rights abuses in Xinjiang and elsewhere, American tariffs on Chinese goods, and export controls that will limit China’s access to advanced components in the semiconductor industry. None of those received top billing in this brief encounter, and each will continue to divide the two.

In that respect, summits like the Bali meeting matter more than the turgid statements released afterward. After nearly two years of duelling rhetoric from afar, it was a chance for both men to assess, in person, the other’s changes since the last time they met, in 2017—adjustments in tone, urgency, confidence, and vulnerability.

To an aggressive dictator like Xi Jinping, what we can do is “peace through strength”. To be honest, the cause of conflict in Taiwan is Xi’s aggression.

China's Xi tells Biden: Taiwan issue is 'first red line' that must not be crossedChinese President Xi Jinping told U.S. President Joe Biden during their first in-person meeting since 2017 that the Taiwan question was the 'very core of China's core interests' and the 'first red line' in bilateral ties that must not be crossed. As expected, though it's a G20 summit but countries never missed their own internal agendas. Time has come when US have to think twice before poking in other's buisness. Both have in common: destroying their own nation and relying on self-invented legitimacy... Oh oh. Biden has to change his diapers now.
