David Bachman quoted on Biden-Xi virtual summit // Kyodo News Service

December 6, 2021

Last week David Bachman was interviewed by the Kyodo News Service of Japan after the Biden-Xi virtual summit, which was held Nov. 15. The attached article is in Japanese. His quotes, in example below, were used by several other newspapers:
“The online meeting between U.S. President Biden and Mr. Xi was important but no more so than previous phone talks. It was not a bold initiative.” and “Mr. Biden was hoping to prevent the U.S.-China conflict from spiraling out of control. It is too early to tell if it has had the desired effect.”
