WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to restore some military-to-military communications between their armed forces. Biden and Xi met on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. A key goal was to forge an agreement to revive the regular talks. U.S. military leaders have expressed repeated concerns about the lack of communications with China, particularly as the number of unsafe or unprofessional incidents between the two nations’ ships and aircraft has spiked in the region. The U.S. has consistently viewed military relations with China as critical to avoiding any missteps and to maintaining a peaceful Indo-Pacific region.
