CNN: Biden will approve a government funding law that does not include aid to Ukraine and Israel

CNN reported that President Joe Biden expressed his willingness to sign the government funding bill adopted by the House of Representatives if it is approved by the Senate, even though it does not include aid to Ukraine and Israel.
The network added, citing an unnamed White House official, that Biden will sign the new government funding decision, even though it does not contain any provisions stipulating providing more aid to Ukraine or Israel.  

The official added in a recent interview with the network: “If the Senate approves the bill, the president will sign the resolution.”

On Tuesday , the US House of Representatives approved temporary legislation that will allow the government shutdown in the United States to be avoided during the holiday period.

Legislation on continued financing of government activities for a short period was approved by 336 votes in favor and 95 votes against the legislation.

The Senate is expected to vote on the legislation after its approval in the House of Representatives, noting that government funding would have ended next Friday, according to existing budget legislation.

In an upcoming summit, Biden meets his Chinese counterpart and the war on Gaza is part of the talks

US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are scheduled to hold a lengthy summit on Wednesday, which will be their first in a year, while an American official revealed that Biden will offer Xi opportunities to support Israel and deliver humanitarian aid to the region.

Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived on Tuesday in San Francisco, California, to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit and meet with his American counterpart, Joe Biden, in a very important summit.

On Wednesday, the presidents of the two largest economic powers in the world are scheduled to hold a lengthy summit, which will be the first between them in a year, during which the two parties will seek to adjust the rules of competition between their countries and ensure that it does not get out of control.

In this context, John Kirby, national security spokesman at the White House, said on Tuesday that Joe Biden will hold talks regarding the crisis in Israel with Xi Jinping.

Kirby added that the United States welcomes the opportunities available to China to support Israel and deliver humanitarian aid to the region, according to Reuters.

Xi's last visit to the United States dates back six years. This will be the second direct meeting between the two leaders since Biden took office in January 2021.

Biden, who, like Xi, arrived in San Francisco on Tuesday to participate in the APEC forum, said that his summit with Xi would be an opportunity to correct bilateral relations that have been strained in recent years.

The US President said that China under President Xi Jinping is suffering from “real problems,” in a statement that comes on the eve of a very important summit between the presidents of the two largest economic powers in the world.

During a fundraising event on Tuesday, Biden continued, “President Xi is another example of how to re-establish American leadership in the world. They have real problems.”

He stressed that his country does not seek to distance itself from China, but rather wants to improve bilateral relations.

Xi got off a China Airlines plane and was received on the tarmac by US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Supporters of the Chinese President gathered in San Francisco before his arrival, as did his opponents.

Xi and Biden will meet on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, a forum that includes 21 members whose economies together represent about 60% of the total global economy.
