Biden urges China to press Iran not to widen Israel-Hamas conflict

In their private session on Wednesday, US President Joe Biden appealed to Xi Xi Jinping to use his influence to try to calm global tensions, particularly to try to pressure Iran not to widen the conflict between Israel and Palestinian terror group Hamas.

A US official said Biden did most of the talking on the matter, and that Xi mostly listened, and that it was too soon to tell what sort of message China was sending to Tehran and how it was being received.

Biden has also pressed Xi to continue to withhold military support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Beijing has long sought to be treated as an equal by Washington, and Biden sought to leverage those ambitions with Xi to address the two devastating wars.
