It’s being described as a candid and in-depth conversation with global implications.
President Xi accepted a phone call from President Biden on Thursday. The U.S. administration says the call was an effort to get the U.S.-China relationship back on track. Beijing said the two countries should cooperate on issues including climate change and economic recovery.
Joining the discussion:
- Neysun Mahboubi is a research scholar with the Center for the Study of Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania.
- Einar Tangen is a political and economic affairs commentator.
- Victor Gao is a chair professor at Soochow University and current affairs commentator.
We turn now to 9/11 – that awful day in September 2001 when the United States was hit with terror attacks in one of the worst tragedies in the nation’s history. Almost three-thousand people were killed in the al-Qaeda terrorist strikes in New York, at the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C. and in a hijacked plane that crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The impact is still being felt in the U.S. and other parts of the world.
- Chris Hedges is an author and journalist.

Then-Sen. Joe Biden was on a train to D.C. when the 9/11 attacks began. He’d spend the day that followed largely on the streets surrounding the Capitol, talking to colleagues, tourists, staffers and reporters about what had happened. https://t.co/JqlBVhQ9tF
