China under Xi has ‘real problems’, Joe Biden says on eve of Apec summit


President Joe Biden said that China had “real problems” as he prepared to meet his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping for a summit in San Francisco aimed at repairing ties.

“President Xi is another example of how reestablishing American leadership in the world is taking hold. They’ve got real problems,” Biden told a fundraising event the day before his talks with the Chinese leader.

US President Joe Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping will meet today on the sidelines of the 21-member APEC summit in San Francisco.

This is only the second in-person meeting between Xi and Biden since the latter took office in January 2021.

The Xi-Biden meeting is likely to cover a wide range of issues, including the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, the Taiwan tangle, free navigation in the South China Sea and the East China Sea, the Russia-Ukraine war, and also allegations of Chinese interference in the US presidential elections.
