Straits Times/AFP: Trump's visit to China will be wonderful and successful, Xi tells Tillerson

BEIJING (AFP) - Chinese President Xi Jinping told US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Saturday (Sept 30) that he expected President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to be “wonderful”, as ties appear warmer following tensions over how to handle North Korea.

Xi smiled as he greeted Tillerson at the imposing Great Hall of the People across Tiananmen Square for talks expected to focus on North Korea and Trump’s November visit.

The two men, however, did not mention the hermit state in public remarks before their private talks.

Xi recalled that he and Trump have spoken on the phone several times and that they already met at the US leader’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida in April and the Group of 20 Nations (G-20) summit in Hamburg in July.
