Trump Announces A Meeting With Xi At The G20 Summit In Japan
Trump announces a meeting with Xi at the G20 summit in Japan. US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping meet later this month in the margins of the G20 summit in Japan.
Trump has declared this on Twitter.
The US president said he made the appointment in a telephone conversation with Xi.
Chinese state media confirmed shortly after Trump’s tweets that Xi had consented to the meeting.
The Chinese leader affirms that dialogue is the only way to resolve trade tensions.
According to Xi, it is essential to listen to each other’s concerns.
“We also hope that the United States will treat Chinese companies fairly.”
With this, he refers to the situation concerning telecom and tech company Huawei, which has been banned by the US.
Before Trump and Xi meet, American and Chinese delegations are again discussing a trade agreement.
The two countries have been in talks for months about new trade agreements.
In between the conversations, they are bothering each other with import duties and other measures.
In the stock markets, people responded with approval to the news that Trump and Xi will meet.
It increases the chance of an agreement and an end to uncertainty.
There is also less chance of further levies that could hamper the growth of various sectors.
Rutte of the party
World leaders from the world’s largest economies meet in late June in Osaka, Japan, to talk about many international challenges.
Eight main themes are on the agenda, including international trade, innovation, environment and women’s rights.
In addition to the leaders of the major countries, including the leaders of the G7, Prime Minister Mark Rutte is also present.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe personally invited him.
Although the Netherlands is in 16th place among the largest economies, it does not belong to the G20.
Rutte is there for the third time in a row.
