China and US President’s will discuss whatsoever they want when they come across at the G20 summit held in Japan, China’s foreign ministry said on Wednesday.
Ministry spokesman Lu Kang also told that an agreement between the United States and China on trade was not only in the interest of the two countries, but also meets the goals of the world.
Four decades of dealings between the United States and China show that optimistic outcomes were always possible, China’s foreign ministry said after their presidents agreed to revive trade talks at a G20 meeting this month.
He would meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Osaka. China, which previously declined to say whether the two leaders would get together, confirmed the meeting, Donald Trump said on Tuesday.
The world’s two largest economies are in the middle of a costly trade clash that has pressured financial markets and spoiled the global economy.
Talks to reach a broad deal broke down last month after US officials blamed China of backing away from agreed commitments. Interaction since then has been limited, and Trump has susceptible to slap more tariffs on Chinese products in a growth that businesses in both countries want to avoid.
In another potential sign of a pre-G20 thaw, state television’s movie channel, which has in recent weeks broadcast old patriotic films about China’s heroics against the United States in the 1950-53 Korean War, on Wednesday showed a movie that put the United States in a far more confident light.
The channel showed 1999’s “Lover’s Grief over the Yellow River”, about a US pilot in World War Two who is saved by Communist guerrilla forces in China and falls in love with one of the young women fighters.
