In their first phone call in seven months, US President Joe Biden, 78, and China’s head of state and party Xi Jinping, 68, warned of the risk that tensions between their countries could end in confrontation. “The two leaders discussed the responsibility of both countries to ensure that the competition does not turn into a conflict,” announced the White House on Friday.

“Confrontation between China and the United States would be a catastrophe for both countries and the world,” said Xi Jinping, according to Chinese state media.
