Dialogue, or War?

The announcement of an agreement to hold a virtual bilateral summit between Presidents Biden and Xi before the end of the year could be a sign of calmer heads prevailing at a moment of increasing tension between the U.S. and China.  The provocations regarding Taiwan and the South China Sea have added to the danger that war between the two nations is possible.  What if, instead, there could be an agreement for the U.S. to join with China, to use the Belt-and-Road Initiative to reconstruct war-torn Afghanistan, through collaboration on joint development projects?  The offer from China for that to occur is on the table -- could we be on the verge of a new era of peaceful cooperation?
