President Biden is expected to have a call with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week, the White House said, calling the United States’ relationship with Beijing “one of the most consequential bilateral relationships in the world,” as U.S. officials double down on their warnings that China poses the greatest long-term threat to U.S. national security.

“This is one of the most consequential bilateral relationships in the world and in one of the most important parts of the world,” White House National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said Tuesday.

Kirby could not give a “specific” date and time for the call between Biden and Xi, but said he expects it to happen “probably this week.”
