There isn't much to chew on in the US readout of the 2 hour, 17 minute call between Biden and Xi. It noted two issues, climate change and health security. It also said that US policy on Taiwan hadn't changed and that it opposed efforts to change the status quo.

There may be some leaks later.


Earlier, China's readout said:

  • China fiercely opposes Taiwan independence and the interference of external forces
  • Those who play with fire get burnt
  • US should abide by One China principle, and act in line with its words
