Chinese President Xi Jinping today (Nov. 15) arrived in San Francisco for a summit with U.S. President Joe Biden, and to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting.
He was received by California Governor Gavin Newsom, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and other U.S. representatives at San Francisco International Airport.
Xi’s upcoming talks with Biden are the first meeting between the two heads of state since their vis-a-vis sit-down in Bali, Indonesia, a year ago. During their Bali talks, the two leaders reached a series of important common understandings.
In the face of complex international landscapes and at a time when China-U.S. relations are at a critical crossroads, Xi’s trip to the United States has drawn worldwide attention.
