He shared his opinions with Espreso TV.

"The meeting between Biden and Xi Jinping will be about Ukraine, there is no doubt about it. Even more, let's face it, they will talk about Russia and its behavior in the entire geopolitical situation. First and foremost, of course, Ukraine, followed by the Middle East, Israel, Africa, and even Central Asia. All of this will not be mentioned directly, but Ukraine and the Middle East will be discussed," Musayev said.

The general believes that there is a possibility for Biden to reach an agreement with Xi to alter the policy regarding relations with Russia.

"While the US may not possess the direct leverage to compel Xi Jinping to address global issues, it is certain that the topic will be brought up during discussions. If Biden manages to pique Xi Jinping's interest in particular economic and geopolitical matters that enhance China's influence in other regions, a discernible shift or cooling in China's relations with Russia becomes not only possible but likely. That's how I would assess the situation," he added.

  • On October 27, US President Joe Biden met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and emphasized the need to cooperate to solve global problems.
  • Chinese President Xi Jinping said that the fate of humanity depends on whether China and the US can find understanding with each other. The Chinese leader expressed hope that the National Committee on US-China Relations would continue to support "Sino-US relations and play a constructive role in promoting the healthy and stable development of relations between the two countries."
  • On October 28, Reuters reported that the US and China have agreed to jointly organize a meeting between leaders Joe Biden and Xi Jinping.
  • Diplomat Volodymyr Ohryzko believes that Joe Biden and Xi Jinping can agree on a new form of peaceful coexistence that involves putting pressure on Russia.
  • US President Joe Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping are scheduled to hold bilateral talks in San Francisco on November 15.
