US president and Chinese counterpart agreed to arms control talks.

Iran PressAmerica: US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to arms control talks as Beijing looks to beef up its nuclear stockpile, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Tuesday.

The world leaders held their most extensive talks to date Monday with a virtual three-hour meeting, during which Biden raised the need for “strategic stability” as tensions with China remain heightened, Fox News reported.

“The two leaders agreed that we would look to begin to carry forward discussions on strategic stability,” Sullivan said during a virtual panel with the Brookings Institute. “It is now incumbent on us to think about the most productive way to carry it forward from here.”

Neither the White House nor China’s foreign ministry mentioned any plans to hold such talks following the summit, but agreeing to discuss arms control would mean a stance reversal by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
