China ready to be ‘partner and friend’ of US: Xi

SAN FRANCISCO (TIP): China is “ready to be a partner and friend of the United States,” President Xi Jinping told US business leaders on November 16, as concerns mount over the country’s slowing economy. If one country sees the other as a main competitor and most consequential geopolitical challenge, “this will only lead to wrong policymaking, misguided actions and unwanted results,” he told a dinner on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.
Xi’s remarks in San Francisco came hours after his highly anticipated talks with US President Joe Biden, where both men pledged to reduce tensions as they met for the first time in a year.
The two sides announced a host of agreements after talks at the luxury Filoli Estate, starting with the reactivation of a high-level military hotline. “We should build more bridges and pave more roads for people-to-people interactions,” Xi told an audience of around 400 business leaders, government officials and academics.
