Kirby Says Biden Stands by Calling Xi Jinping a Dictator Despite Their Attempts at Making Diplomatic Inroads
KIRBY: "We came away from San Francisco with some concrete deliverables on fentanyl, on military-to-military communications, on getting our two teams together to start working on artificial intelligence, particularly in the national security realm. There was an awful lot of very good outcomes at this meeting between President Biden and President Xi, and the president’s looking forward, we’re looking forward, to managing this relationship in a more responsible way and moving things forward. Looking for ways where we can co-operate, but also not being afraid to confront where we can’t, including on the tensions in South China Sea. So, the president and his whole national security team is focused forward now coming out of San Francisco."
