Joe Biden and Xi Jinping concluded the first in-person meeting between the leaders of the US and China since the pandemic began after about three hours on Monday, with both calling for reduced tensions between the world’s largest economies.

The White House said in a statement that Secretary of State Antony Blinken would travel to China, in a sign of a thaw in relations. The countries will also resume talks between senior officials on issues including climate change, economic stability and debt relief, and health and food security, according to the statement.

Biden and Xi also agreed that “a nuclear war should never be fought” and that they oppose “the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine.” Xi and the Chinese government have been reticent to publicly criticize Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.
