Nevertheless, after the virtual biden-Xi meeting, it seems to be a long, slow talk-hour, but it does ...

- The long reign between the superpowers and the president of Japan, Joe Biden and Xi Jinping just finished their long exchanges as world leaders, but three and a half hours of talks seems to have little effect on those differences.

The state media described the meeting as "frank, constructive, substantive and fruitful."

At the hands of a video conference, the two sides discussed large issues from Taiwan, trade, North Korea, Afghanistan, Iran, to Korea, Afghanistan, and the Philippines.

In the same vein no reseens were found, arguing a consequence that neither side had softened increasingly arrogant positions that have scooted the world's two largest economies to an ill-considered point, particularly in the issue of Taiwan.

I suspect that people exchanged views over everything under the sun, but didn't give a decision and said no policy steps, said Scott Kennedy.

Their basic position may be recited in the coming days, but if not, those two sides cited "Perhaps" in this recitation of both sides' basic positions. They seem to agree that the relationship needs some guardrails and stability, but they don't agree on how to get there."

The senior U.S. official said after the meeting that the exchange purpose of the exchange from the U.S. side wasn't particularly to ease tensions, nor was the result necessarily necessarily that.

The official said that we weren't expecting a breakthrough. There wasn't any report.

Even though the media said Xi said he hoped Biden could demonstrate "political leadership" to get US policy towards China back into a rational and practical path, it seemed likely to give a little incentive for that, only ominous warnings.

China told a key Taiwan flashpoint that the US and China would need to take decisive measures if pro-independence forces crossed a red line, while Xi said that the USA and China were "like two ships that shouldn't collide."

Daniel Russel, who served as the most u.S. diplomat under Barack Obama and now with the Asia Society think tank, noted that it took 10 months to progress towards the point of face-to-face talks, albeit without meetings. Assuming that the leaders were able to have more time, he suggested that additional could come.

"We must consider that to be not a one-off kind of summary, but rather an important dialogue, which allows for a closer relationship and a closer relationship," he said.

But as soon as possible, the two leaders will begin to work into an extremely deep hole, that will ultimately require more regular engagement.

Though the meeting has stabilized the relationship in the near term, "the long term structural challenges in the US-China relationship haven't been addressed in substantial way."

An open mind revealed that while there weren't any progress, some Chinese analysts were optimistic and Wang Huiyao said that meeting is "very positive."

I think it'll stop the downward spiral of bilateral relations and will stabilize U.S. China for some time," he said, adding that it should also help reduce tensions in the Taiwan Strait.

Wu Xinbo, director of American Studies at Fudan University Shanghai, said the meeting continued the positive trend of strengthening bilateral ties following a phone call in September between Biden and Xi.

"The sides will be turning their attention to increased cooperation and less effective management of their differences," she said.
