The meeting between U.S. President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Bali yielded little in the way of tangible results. Still, the leaders agreed to continue a dialogue at the top and cabinet levels to prevent an accidental collision between their countries.

This was their first face-to-face meeting since Biden took office as president. A candid discussion between the leaders of the U.S. and China -- two major world powers -- should be welcomed, given its importance to global stability and in resolving international challenges.
