Talks between US president and Chinese leader likely to improve stability in Taiwan Strait

# Talks between US president Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping this week – and agreement to restore military communications – will likely improve stability in the Taiwan Strait. This is the opinion of Taipei’s chief delegate to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. AFP reports Morris Chang, who is in San Francisco as Taiwan’s envoy for the summit, thinks it is good news that they have resumed military communications. Taiwan is a key point of tension between Washington and Beijing, with China claiming self-ruled Taiwan as its territory.
