Biden to Discuss Taiwan ‘Red Lines’ With Xi Jinping – SCMP


US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he will discuss “red lines” over Taiwan in a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping that is expected to occur before the Group of 20 summit in Indonesia next week, the South China Morning Post reported, adding that Biden suggested he could also discuss China’s growing nuclear arsenal, which has been another point of concern in Washington.

Biden said that while he was not willing to make any fundamental concessions, what he wanted to do “is lay out what each of our red lines are” to “understand what he believes to be in the critical national interests of China, what I know to be in the critical interests in the United States, and to determine whether or not they conflict with one another. And if they do, how to resolve and how to work it out.”
