In a significant diplomatic move, U.S. President Joe Biden is determined to re-establish military-to-military ties with China, according to White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan. The announcement comes just days before the anticipated face-to-face meeting between President Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco.

Importance of Military Ties:

Sullivan emphasized the importance of rebuilding these ties, stating that President Biden believes it is in the U.S. national security interest. The objective is to prevent potential mistakes, miscalculations, or miscommunications, highlighting the necessity of robust communication channels.

Scope of Restored Ties:

Sullivan outlined that the restoration of military ties could encompass various levels, ranging from senior leadership to tactical operational levels. The focus extends to activities both on the water and in the air within the Indo-Pacific region.

Meeting Agenda:

While Sullivan did not delve into specifics, he mentioned that President Biden would seek to “advance the ball” on military ties during the meeting with President Xi. The disruption in communication links by the Chinese is a key concern, and re-establishing these links is a top agenda item for the Biden administration.

Broad Spectrum of Discussions:

The Biden-Xi meeting is expected to cover a myriad of global issues, including the Israel-Hamas conflict, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, North Korea’s ties with Russia, Taiwan, the Indo-Pacific region, human rights, fentanyl production, artificial intelligence, and “fair” trade and economic relations.

Background:

Relations between the U.S. and China experienced tension following the shooting down of a suspected Chinese spy balloon over the United States in February. Despite this, top Biden administration officials have visited Beijing, engaging with their counterparts to rebuild communication and trust.

As diplomatic efforts intensify, the meeting between President Biden and President Xi Jinping holds the promise of renewed communication and collaboration between the two nations. The focus on military-to-military ties reflects a commitment to stability and the prevention of potential misunderstandings that could impact global security.
