The advisers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to preview the meeting, did not provide specifics on its location, citing security concerns.
The meeting will take place almost a year to the day after Mr. Biden and Mr. Xi met during the Group of 20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, another rigidly planned diplomatic affair that took place amid fears over rising Chinese aggression toward Taiwan and steep competition between Washington and Beijing over military and technology advances. The two have not spoken since, and the intervening year has severely tested relations.
A Chinese spy balloon that crossed over the United States before an American fighter jet downed it off the coast of South Carolina set off a diplomatic crisis in February. And more recently, tensions have flared over matters like Chinese espionage and U.S. restrictions on technology exports to China.
Strains remain and will be addressed, Mr. Biden’s advisers say, but this year, Chinese and American officials have also emphasized the importance of strengthening ties between the world’s two largest economies. The Biden administration has already sent several top officials — including Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken, Treasury Secretary Janet L. Yellen and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo — to China this year to try to make clear that while the United States wants to protect national security, it does not seek to sever economic ties.
On Thursday, China’s ambassador to the United States, Xie Feng, said in video remarks to a forum in Hong Kong that China wanted reassurances that “the U.S. does not seek to change China’s system, does not seek a new Cold War, does not support Taiwan independence and has no intention to seek decoupling from China.”
