Biden-Xi call lasts more than two hours

Source: Fox News

“President Biden held his longest call with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday morning amid tensions between the two world powers. The call — the fifth between Biden and Xi since Biden took office — began at 8:33 a.m. ET and lasted two hours and 17 minutes, the White House said. The White House promised to provide a readout of the call afterward. Chinese government officials have recently demanded House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., cancel a planned trip to Taiwan, saying it is a betrayal of Chinese-U.S. foreign policy agreements. The Chinese Communist Party has threatened to respond if Pelosi visits the island, which mainland China believes rightfully belongs the CCP but which Taiwan itself denies.” [editor’s note: Given Biden’s inability to make a complete sentence (and the “translators”) this “readout” transcription should be very interesting – SAT] (07/28/22)
