Trump to make China state visit, says top USA diplomat

U.S. President Donald Trump told Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn, South Korea's acting president, that he made "clear" Washington's position on the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) battery to Korea during his summit with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

Heading into the first talks between President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, North Korea was the front-and-center security issue on the table. "Tremendous.goodwill and friendship was formed, but only time will tell on trade".

Speaking after the two-day summit, USA secretary of state Rex Tillerson said China agreed to work with the U.S. to rein in North Korea.

President Donald Trump today hailed the tremendous progress made by the USA in its relationship with China and said he expects "lots of very potential bad problems to go away" in future.

The summit was was largely overshadowed by Trump's Thursday night order of a missile strike against a Syrian airfield, following a suspected poison gas attack carried out by Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces on Tuesday.

The leaders of the world's two most powerful economies are a study in contrasts - one a softly spoken Communist Party apparatchik and the other a brash Manhattan property tycoon.

Many Republican members of Congress welcomed the more forceful stance against North Korea, but there was disagreement in the Democratic ranks. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer described it as a terrific visit. Some $347 billion of the $502 billion trade deficit recorded by the US a year ago was with China.

The official China Daily newspaper said it was encouraging to see the two-day summit that ended on Friday "going as well as it could" after earlier "confusing signals" from Washington about how it was approaching the U.S.

Since his election Trump has moderated his tough campaign tone towards China, and he welcomed the 63-year-old Xi to Mar-a-Lago's ornate dining room with an open agenda created to enable the pair build a rapport.

Xi told Trump that China insists on peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and advocates resolving the problem through peaceful means. Unfortunately, this summit was all talk and no action when it comes to China's cheating on trade.

Tillerson said the two leaders noted the urgency of the threat of North Korea's weapons program. Foreign relations committee member senator Ed Markey (D-MA) expressed the feeling of many, suggesting that an increased USA military presence in the region will result in "an escalation of tension that could lead to nuclear war". "These sanctions are very important and we will use them to the maximum effect". -China trade more balanced.

During the speech, Xi expressed his readiness to lead, together with President Trump, people who have good wishes and passion to upgrade China-US relations.

Trump spoke publicly of progress on a range of issues in his first U.S.

Several lawmakers said Sunday that decision shouldn't entirely be up to Trump.

China's economy is to maintain sound momentum of development, and China and the United States enjoy broad prospects in economic and trade cooperation, said Xi, urging the two sides to grasp the opportunity.

"We have engaged in deeper understanding, and have built a trust", he said.

"Some forces are loud-mouthed that the recent USA military attack on Syria is an action of warning us but we are not frightened by it", the official continued.
