The phone call between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Joe Biden on Chinese New Year’s Eve serves as a tone-setter for future bilateral relations in short term and shows that the two sides are willing to push bilateral ties forward in a more positive direction that can manage ties through constructive dialogue and cooperation.  Chinese observers said the phone call, arranged on Chinese New Year’s Eve, shows the Biden administration’s goodwill toward the Chinese government and the Chinese people. 

Biden conveyed festive greetings to the Chinese people and wished the Chinese people a happy and prosperous New Year. Xi congratulated Biden once again on taking office as US president, and wished the people of China and the United States a happy and auspicious Year of the Ox, according to Xinhua News Agency.
