The presidents of the United States and China, Joe Biden e Xi Jinping, will agree on a partial reopening of communication channels between the military leaders of the two countries during the meeting between the two heads of state scheduled for this week in San Francisco. This was anticipated by "a source close to bilateral relations" quoted by the "Kyodo" news agency, according to whom the president will formulate the proposal Biden, and his Chinese counterpart should accept, since Beijing has also expressed favorable opinions on the matter. Direct communication channels between the armed forces of the two countries have been interrupted since August last year, when the then speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, visited Taiwan. Biden and Xi, who will meet on the sidelines of the Economic Cooperation summit Asia-Pacific taking place in California, they will also discuss a range of controversial issues, from Taiwan and deepening ties between China and Russia to trade restrictions.

According to the source, Biden and Xi may agree to limit the military use of artificial intelligence that does not involve human supervision: both countries fear that the unrestricted use of this emerging technology could accidentally trigger a conflict between the United States and China . Yesterday the White House National Security Advisor, Jake sullivan, expressed the hope that the meeting between the two leaders could lead to progress towards the restoration of direct communication channels between the two countries: “There are also areas where we can manage competition more effectively, for example by restoring communications between militaries,” he said Sullivan during a press conference in Washington. Even as the United States and China have increased communications at the level of senior officials in recent months to lay the groundwork for the meeting between Biden and Xi, tensions between the two major world powers over their geopolitical rivalry have persisted .
