Biden once again called Xi Jinping a dictator after negotiations Xi Jinping and Joe Biden

President of the United States Joe Biden referred to the leader of China, Xi Jinping, as a dictator again, just a few hours after the negotiations between them, according to CNN.

During a press conference held after the talks between the American and Chinese leaders in San Francisco, Biden, responding to a journalist's question about whether he would continue to describe Xi Jinping as a dictator, said:

"He’s a dictator in the sense that he is the guy who runs a country which is a communist country based on a form of government totally different from ours."

In June of this year, the U.S. President referred to the head of the PRC as a dictator due to the situation with the spy balloon. At that time, China protested, calling Biden's words a provocation.

The presidents agreed to resume high-level military cooperation between the two countries, discussed the war in Ukraine, issues related to Taiwan, tensions in the Middle East, and a range of other matters.
