Sieht so aus, als ob Biden endlich sein Treffen mit Xi bekommt. Allerdings machen die Usis schon wieder, was die Chinesen nicht abkönnen. Vorher an die Presse weiterreichen, was man alles an "tough talk" vorgesehen hat und China als Boten an Dritte einspannen:
President Joe Biden’s concerns about the Israel-Hamas war will spill over into his long-awaited face-to-face meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping on the sidelines of APEC on Wednesday.
When the two leaders meet at an undisclosed location in the San Francisco Bay area, Biden will urge Xi to use his influence with Tehran to prevent Iran and its proxies from exploiting the Israel-Hamas war to sow a wider regional conflict.
Biden “will underscore our desire for China to make clear in its burgeoning relationship with Iran that it is essential that Iran not seek to escalate or spread violence in the Middle East,” a senior administration official told reporters on Thursday. Any “provocative actions” by Iran will spark a prompt U.S. response, the official said.
China’s ties to Iran will be part of the “tough conversations” between Biden and Xi that will touch on all key issues of the U.S.-China relations, a second senior administration official said
Beijing, for its part, won’t give details on Xi’s meeting agenda. The two leaders will discuss the “strategic, overarching and fundamental importance in shaping China-U.S. relations and major issues concerning world peace and development,” a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Friday.
