Virtual meetings Tensions in Taiwan Strait will be the center of a meeting between US President Joe Biden (China) and the Chinese President Xi Jinping (US). Both sides will shoot diplomatic shots in regard to Taiwan’s position as well as other issues, ranging from the China-US Trade War all the way to the 2022 Olympics.
In a telephone conversation with Antony Blinken, the Chinese Secretary of State Wang Yang highlighted Beijing’s claim to democracy of 23.5 million citizens. This was ahead of the Biden-Xi virtual meeting.
Wang reported to have advised the US to stay clear of “Taiwan independence” and Chinese state media followed suit on Monday with an China summer business casual barber business cards tech business cards vertical business card business casual shoes coastal business business goose Daily editorial that called for the US to abide by the “One China Principle”, Beijing’s policy stating that there is one sovereign country of China and that includes Taiwan.
According to the Global Times, US officials were accused of breaking the “red line” earlier this week, while also collaborating in a shady deal with Taiwanese president Tsai Ing Wen. The Biden Administration has been much more outspoken in its support of Taiwan since entering the White House in January than previous Democratic Presidency.
One of Washington’s most severe warnings, Blinken stated last week that the US and its allies would “take actions” to protect Taiwan.

Although it has been a long-running problem between the US and China, tensions over the Taiwan Strait have risen further recently , after China sent over 140 military planes , including 56 in just one day – to Taiwan’s Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) in early October.
The number of flights to the ADIZ have increased significantly since the time President Tsai took office in 2016, and there has been another increase over the last year. China could be able to launch an attack on Taiwan in 2027, according to the Pentagon report (PDF) released last week.
J Michael Cole, a senior fellow at the Macdonald-Laurier Institute in Canada based in Taipei told Al Jazeera, that Beijing wants an isolated Taiwan.
“Current developments in the US that are more focused weather hourly walk ons naruto hoodie craigslist springfield mo exercise power train for a boxing match men’s tennis chain travel trunk travel soap case on security ‘guarantees’ to Taiwan (if implied) which is a major barrier to China having the ability to convince Taiwan that it is forced to surrender,” he said.
“Xi is seeking signals from Biden] that can be exploited in such propaganda strategies. Whether Biden will offer these signals is highly doubtful. I don’t think he will.
Human rights violations
Taiwan is however only one of the alleged fault lines to be identified in the Xi Biden call on Monday.

In April in April, the US State Department raised concerns about China’s human rights record and suggested that the US could not participate in the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. The US State Department has since retracted its position.
According to CNBC the comments could place Biden in a difficult position due to the fact that Xi is expected invite Biden to the Olympics.
If personal interactions between the leaders will influence China-US relations is not clear, Matthew Goodman, an Asia advisor on the National Security Council during the Barack Obama and George W Bush administrations was quoted by Reuters the news agency.
