During the encounter, President Biden, displaying the photo on his cellphone, prompted a conversation with President Xi, asking, “Do you know this young man?” President Xi, reminiscing, responded, “Oh yes, this was 38 years ago,” as revealed by Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying on social media platform X.

The post quickly gained traction across social media, illustrating the personal exchange between the two leaders. Following their meeting, Xi Jinping addressed business executives, emphasizing China’s commitment to cooperation with the United States.

“China never bets against the United States. We have no intention to challenge or unseat the United States,” President Xi declared. He outlined China’s principles, asserting that, regardless of its development stage, the nation would not pursue hegemony, expansion, or impose its will on others. President Xi conveyed China’s disinterest in spheres of influence and its commitment to avoiding both cold and hot wars.

“We’ll be glad to see a confident, open, ever-growing, and prosperous US. Likewise, the United States should not bet against China or interfere in China’s internal affairs. We should instead welcome a peaceful, stable, and prosperous China,” President Xi added.

In a move towards diplomatic progress, Xi Jinping and Joe Biden agreed to restart high-level military-to-military talks, as reported by Xinhua news agency. The leaders expressed their commitment to resuming these talks on the basis of equality and respect.

Furthermore, the two leaders agreed to establish joint government discussions on the use of artificial intelligence, reflecting a collaborative approach to emerging technologies.
