WASHINGTON: US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are hold a virtual summit on Monday as tensions between the countries deepen, BBC reports.

The two nations surprised many last week by issuing a joint declaration to address climate change, at talks in Glasgow, Scotland.

But growing concerns of a military confrontation over Taiwan have thrown their differences into sharp relief, according to BBC.

The pair’s third meeting will address several thorny topics, it said.

Cybersecurity, trade and nuclear non-proliferation are subjects on the table, sources familiar with the negotiations told US media.

In a statement, the White House said “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”.

Writing to the National Committee on US-China Relations non-profit last week, Mr Xi said his country was ready to work with the US to get relations back on track. He added that cooperation was “the only right choice”.
