The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying says President Xi Jinping will hold bilateral meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron, US President Joe Biden, and Senegalese President Macky Sall, among others, on the sidelines of the G20 summit next week.
The 17th ‘Group of Twenty’ Heads of State and Government Summit will take place on 15-16 November 2022 in Bali, Indonesia.
“Xi Jinping will hold bilateral meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron, US President Joe Biden, Senegal’s President Macky Sall, Argentine President Alberto Fernandez and the leaders of other countries on the sidelines [of the summit],” the Spokesperson announced on Friday, in a statement.
The White House also issued a statement on Thursday confirming that Biden’s meeting with Xi Jinping would take place on the sidelines of the G20 summit.
“The leaders will discuss efforts to maintain and deepen lines of communication between the United States and the PRC, responsibly manage competition, and work together where our interests align, especially on transnational challenges that affect the international community,” White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said.
The meeting will be the leaders’ first in-person meeting since Biden took office.
