Biden on Xi: I know him well, but we're not friends

United States President Joe Biden responded to a reporter's question on Chinese President Xi Jinping by stating that he knows him "well" but that they are not "friends."

"Let's get something straight. We know each other well, we're not old friends. It's pure business," Biden said on Wednesday at a press briefing in Geneva.

However, the US leader warned that there will be another pandemic and that countries, including China, should work together on a global response to the next health crisis.
