Trump and Xi to hold bilateral meeting at G20 summit
President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, his Chinese counterpart, will hold a bilateral meeting when the two leaders attend the G20 summit in Japan this month, raising hopes the US and China will resurrect moribund efforts to end their trade war.
Trump wrote via his Twitter account, “Had a very good telephone conversation with President Xi of China. We will be having an extended meeting next week at the G-20 in Japan.”
“Our respective teams will begin talks prior to our meeting.”
Trump had previously suggested that the two leaders would meet at the G20 in Osaka, but it was not confirmed by the White House.
Chinese officials did however confirm that both Trump and Xi Jinping would hold a bilateral meeting at the summit.
