China’s Xi won’t make same mistakes in Taiwan that Putin made in Ukraine: Kirk Lippold

Relations between the U.S. and China has been a top issue of concern for Washington and Beijing at the G-20 conference, though U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said Tuesday she was "optimistic" following President Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping’s meeting this week.
Tai noted that the U.S. and China pledged to keep lines of communication open despite continued Trump-era tariffs on Beijing and said she was "optimistic about the capability to manage an important and complex relationship."
"I think that is part and parcel with the non-economic practice and concerns, and we will continue to work on those issues," she said during the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore reported the South China Morning Post.
