7:02 am
peacefully. we believe and. busy you and i have talked about this, all countries have to play by the same rules of the road. why the united states is always going to stand up for our interest and values in those of our allies and partners. i think it's important we communicate honestly directly to one other about our priorities and our intentions. whitehouse corresponding kimmy. how can explains what's at stake? what's a steak is ensuring that there isn't permanent and lasting damage as a result of the tensions that have been escalated between the world's 2 largest economies for quite some time. what we've seen is a number of key differences, whether it be on human rights, on security, and particularly when it comes to trade. so what we know from the start at the summit is that the u. s. president reiterated what we expected him to say, and that is that there needs to be an establishment of the parameters of the
7:03 am
relationship in order to put in place what he called guard rails to ensure that this escalation doesn't turn into confrontation. and to that, and we know that the u. s. president, i did want to work out any sort of potential misunderstandings or miscommunications in order to ensure that there isn't conflict. we know that some of the big issues for these 2 is centered around trade. we don't expect that there will be any resolution to that issue, but instead that a pathway will be created in order to resolve future differences. we should point out very quickly that the u. s. president, although his polls domestically are lagging right now in the united states, he went into this meeting strong. in fact, it's no coincidence that just prior to the start of this virtual summit between the 2 leaders that the u. s. president signed into law legislation. that is a $1.00 trillion dollar package to rebuild americas infrastructure. this will
7:04 am
create jobs, but it will also allow the united states to compete with china in the 21st century according to biden. so, as a result, the u. s. president wanting to make sure that that playing field is level so that there could be increased fair competition and not some of the concerns that the us has had with china and a disruption of global trading norms as us, as alleged in the past. as not speak to katrina you who's in beijing for us. katrina, what does using ping one from this meeting? i think president, she really wants to see as beijing would put it this relationship put back on track . now we've just had some updates from chinese state media posting some very positive footage of president. she didn't pay, making his opening remarks. some of the highlights of things. he said was that the u. s. and trying to both to shoulder international responsibilities, worked together and tactfully global challenges, respect one another,
7:05 am
and focus on when, when outcomes now, i think it's highly unlikely that prisoners she didn't think would have even agreed to this virtual summit, if he didn't believe that there would be some sort of positive outcome. i think china genuinely does want to see an improvement in the relationship which has been tense for years now. since the trump administration, there have been a number of disagree, mental anything from technology to trade, to human rights. i think we have seen some positive moves, things that have been ameliorating the situation between the 2 countries and late september us, chinese hallway, tech executive, mung, one joe who was detained in canada for 3 years under u. s. charges were released. that was seen as a very positive sign said aging. and just last week we had the surprise joint declaration at the club, 26 climate summit between the u. s. and china. this rest show of unity. now it's kimberly alluded to. we do also have
7:06 am
a lot of disagreements on the table that these 2 countries need to look at. these 2 leaders will no doubt discuss issues such as the south china sea. and what the u. s . has described is tried, is increasing aggression over that disputed territory as well as china is activity increasing activity in the taiwan straits now trying to seize taiwan as part of china. but at the same time, we've seen the biden administration making various very friendly, moved towards the taiwanese leader sighing when and that has really infuriated beijing. i think the bottom line is, china does want to find some common ground amid these see of differences. and 2 things to note, i think is that's a job. but, and she jumping, have known each other for years now. they were working together as far back as the obama administration. and secondly, she didn't ping is domestically an extremely strong position. just last week we had this top level leaders meeting in beijing where she's in pain,
7:07 am
consolidated his power as the president of china next year. he will begin this unprecedented 3rd term in office and he could potentially rule china for life. so no doubt that will play a pot and setting the tone for the rest of these talks today. but he, thanks for katrina ye that 1st in beijing was have been speaking to the asia, political risk. analysts, ross in gold. he explains why the u. s. has been taking a strongest stance on china in the last few years. the relationship is strained across such a wide range of issues. maybe years ago. there be more focus on trade for example. but now the united states criticisms are action certainly began in the latter half the truck ministration. not just on trade, but on, on, targeted sanctions against officials, whether that,
7:08 am
officials in jack to bad or hong kong action united states is taking with other countries. notable example would be there, the quad or the office agreement. again, these are things that began under the trump administration, continuing in part or with new initiatives under the bided administration. and you see the same with intellectual property or investigation alleged in united states, again, a number of chinese nationals have been indicted by official by the us government over visa fraud or similar issue. so the points of contention are so why and spanish so many different issues. it's fair to say that the relationship is framed across all these very different areas. total traumas, former police go advisor. steve baton has appeared in court hours after he surrendered to the fbi. i in washington, dc,
