Beijing: Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the G20 leaders’ summit in the Indonesian city of Bali from November 14 to 17 where he will hold his first in-person talks with his US counterpart Joe Biden and other world leaders, the foreign ministry announced here on Friday.

Xi will also attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Bangkok, Thailand from November 17 to 19, foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said. This will be Xi’s first visit abroad after his election last month for an unprecedented third five-year term as the General Secretary of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) at its once-in-a-five-year Congress.

He is the first leader after party founder Mao Zedong to continue in power after completing a 10-year tenure.
