[뉴욕=이데일리 김정남 특파원] US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to hold a video summit next week.
Bloomberg reported on the 9th (local time), citing a source, that “the two countries are still in the process of discussing the exact date of the summit.” A video summit will be held next week, but a specific date is being coordinated.
The White House and the US State Department did not respond, Bloomberg said.
Earlier, on the 6th of last month, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and Yang Jiechi, a member of the Politburo in charge of Chinese foreign affairs, had a meeting in Zurich, Switzerland, and agreed to a video summit within the year.
If the summit takes place, it will be the first since Biden took office in January. The two leaders only had two phone calls, in February and September, and have yet to hold a meeting.
