The Heat: Xi-Biden talks and 9/11: 20 years on

The Heat

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.
