NEW YORK -- In their first virtual face-to-face summit, U.S. President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping both confirmed that there is no change in their stance on Taiwan, but expressed concern that the other party may break the status quo.

Biden underscored that the U.S. remains committed to the "One China" policy, under which Washington acknowledges the Chinese position that there is but one China and has formal ties with Beijing rather than Taipei.
