Biden prepares to meet with Xi Jinping amid 'concerns' over China's actions

President Biden will not "hold back" on areas of concern in his virtual meeting Monday evening with Chinese President Xi Jinping, as the Biden administration works to stabilize the relationship between the U.S. and China. 

The White House announced the meeting Friday, saying that the two leaders "will discuss ways to responsibly manage the competition between the United States and the PRC, as well as ways to work together where our interests align." 

"Throughout, President Biden will make clear U.S. intentions and priorities and be clear and candid about our concerns with the PRC," the White House said.

In addition to discussing the relationship in general, the Biden administration in recent months has also focused on China’s lack of transparency with regard to the international investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
