US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in Bali on the sidelines of the G20 summit.
This is reported by Bloomberg.
Biden and Xi Jinping shook hands on Monday before their first face-to-face meeting since Biden took office.
"Good to see you," Biden told Xi before they joined US and Chinese officials. Both sides sat at long tables for negotiations.
"In my view, we share a responsibility to show that China and the United States can manage our differences, prevent competition from conflict, and find ways to better cooperate," Biden said as he opened the talks.
Xi Jinping said the two sides "must find the right direction" and "raise the relationship".
"At the moment, China-US relations are in such a situation that we all care very much about them, because it is the fundamental interest of our two countries and peoples, and it is what the international community expects from us," he said.
After the talks, Biden intends to hold a press conference.
