Sharjah 24 – AFP: US President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that China's leader Xi Jinping made a "big mistake" by not attending the Glasgow climate and G20 summits but said he hoped for talks to prevent conflict.
"It's been a big mistake, quite frankly, for China not showing up. The rest of the world looked at China and said 'what value are they providing?'," Biden told a news conference at the COP26 summit in Glasgow.
