After the meeting at the Asia-Pacific Economic Summit, US President Joe Biden reiterated his statement in which he had called the Chinese President a ‘dictator’. Although this statement is not being given priority in the Chinese media, but the Chinese media seems to be quite positive about this meeting.
China’s state media Global Times writes, ‘Xi Jinping’s speech at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting is not a confrontation but a symbol of the common expectations of the Asia-Pacific region.’
Unprecedented coverage by Chinese media
China’s newspaper People’s Daily said about the meeting with America that this is the beginning of a new relationship developing between the two countries. The newspaper said, ‘The meeting between the leaders of the two countries was positive. This meeting is a new step towards strengthening the relations between China and America. The newspaper also published those things which are not usually seen in Chinese media. The newspaper has written that Xi Jinping and Joe Biden went to Filoli Estate in San Francisco in the same car.
China’s government agency Xinhua has published an article on Xi Jinping’s ‘love for America’, in which it has even called the Chinese President a friend of America. Xinhua’s website is full of news about the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conference. A report has been written on the website titled ‘Xi Jinping proposed for the next 30 golden years in Asia-Pacific economic cooperation’.
What issues were agreed upon during the US-China meeting?
The top leaders of America and China have decided to once again resume the stalled military dialogue during the meeting. Both have expressed their commitment to tackle climate change. Apart from this, they agreed to increase cooperation to crack down on fentanyl drug smuggling.
It is worth noting that last year 75 thousand citizens in America died due to this drug. Along with this, China said that it will send its pandas to the zoos of America. It is believed that China sends pandas to deepen its relations with a country. In Chinese diplomatic language it is called Panda Diplomacy. Apart from this, the leaders of China and America agreed that they will continue mutual talks.
