Feb 11 (Reuters) - The editor-in-chief of the Chinese Communist Party-backed tabloid the Global Times said on Thursday the two hour long call between U.S. President Joe Biden and China's Xi Jinping was "a very positive message" and showed "in-depth communication".

"This is a very positive message. The talk time means it is far more than a courtesy. The two leaders were familiar with each other in the past, and they obviously had in-depth communication this time. The occurrence of this communication is constructive", Hu Xijin said in a tweet.

Biden said earlier that he spoke to the Chinese president for two hours on Wednesday night.
