Restoring US-Chinese military dialogue will be a key priority for president Joe Biden when he meets his Chinese counterpart on home soil tomorrow, as President Xi Jinping embarks on his first trip to the US in six years.

The two leaders – who will have a one-on-one session during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference in San Francisco – are expected to discuss multiple topics, including the rocky US-China trade relationship, crisis in Ukraine and the Middle East, and the biggest flashpoint of all, Taiwan.
