Xi Jinping and Joe Biden held the fifth phone call of their presidencies - DW News.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Joe Biden held the fifth phone call of their presidencies on Thursday against the backdrop of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's potentially planning a visit to the self-governed Taiwan, which is claimed by China. The call lasted two hours and 17 minutes, according to the White House.

China has vowed to reunite democratically governed Taiwan with the mainland, even if it means using force. In light of Russia's recent invasion of Ukraine, concerns about China turning that threat into reality are rising.

White House officials said that the call had been planned long in advance and would follow a broad agenda.
