WASHINGTON, Jan 21 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio in a virtual meeting on Friday shared concerns about China’s practices in Xinjiang and Hong Kong, the White House said.
The two leaders also resolved “to push back” against China’s attempts to change the status quo in the East China Sea and South China Sea, the White House said.
In the 90-minute call, Biden and Kishida also discussed the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and the peaceful resolution of cross-strait issues, the White House said.
