The world is currently in a chaotic situation. After the COVID era ended, the war in Ukraine happened, and now a conflict in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine. Many are afraid that this could mean even greater economic defeats for the countries of the world, as well as the potential emergence of a world war.

In these moments, it is necessary for the leaders of the countries to sit down and find a common language, with the aim of solving global problems. Leaders of the largest countries; the USA and China will meet soon. Teams from the US and Chinese presidents, Joe Biden and Xi Jinping, have tentatively agreed to a meeting in San Francisco in November.

However, crucial details are still under discussion, according to a senior Biden administration official. This development aligns with White House spokeswoman Karina Jean Pierre's announcement of the leaders' intention to engage in a "constructive conversation" during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in San Francisco.

The official stated, "There is an agreement in principle to meet in San Francisco in November. We are still working out important details to finalize those plans." The possibility of a summit between Presidents Biden and Xi was discussed during meetings involving Biden, his national security adviser Jake Sullivan, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, held at the White House and State Department on Friday, November 3.

The APEC summit is scheduled to occur in mid-November. Many believe and hope that the leaders of these two countries will touch on topics related to the war in Ukraine, as well as the chaos in Palestine. It is necessary that at this moment the leaders of both countries understand how important it is to create peace at a time when it is increasingly being violated.

In a recent statement, President Joe Biden condemned the retaliatory assaults carried out by Israeli settlers on Palestinians in the West Bank. However, we will see if it means anything.
