U.S. President Joe Biden spoke to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Wednesday, the White House said, his first direct contact with the leader of the world's second-largest economy since winning the November U.S. presidential election and taking office last month.
It was also the first call between Xi and a U.S. president since the Chinese leader spoke with former President Donald Trump in March last year. Since then, relations between the two countries have plunged to their worst level in decades.
