Trump to Return China's Visit Later This Year: Chinese State Media

Of course, if the country collapses, there is a major refuge issue, and if Kim or his military are stupid enough to start a war, China will have to deal with the USA military operating right in its backyard.

Tillerson said Trump accepted Xi's invitation to visit China.

Tillerson said Xi told Trump that he "understood that such a response was necessary when people are killing children" and expressed "an appreciation" to Trump for informing him of the number of missiles that were launched and explaining the rationale behind the strike.

President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping shake hands during a dinner at Mar-a-Lago, Thursday, April 6, 2017, in Palm Beach, Fla. "And I believe lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away", Trump said.

The U.S. airstrikes this week were aimed at a Syrian air base, but nearly certainly got the attention of another adversary - North Korea.

The talks were overshadowed by a crisis in Syria as Trump, just before his his dinner with Xi, ordered a massive military strike on a Syrian air base in retaliation to a "barbaric" chemical attack on civilians allegedly by embattled President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Instead, China's foreign ministry urged all sides to find a "political", rather than military, solution to the problem.

But the big stunner came on Friday, when Trump's much-anticipated face-off with Chinese president Xi Jinping fizzled, ending in warm declarations of good will and mutual respect-and apparently nothing more. Hadn't Trump had railed against China on the campaign trail for "stealing" American jobs?

Many of those aggrieved workers helped Mr Trump win the November presidential election and he is under pressure to deliver on his promises to them.

Despite the rosy words, there was one dark cloud hanging over the meeting.

The bilateral investment treaty mentioned by Xi, talks on which began during former president George W. Bush's administration and resumed under Barack Obama, has received little attention since Trump took office.

He called their relationship "outstanding".

"But there's a real commitment that we work together to see if this can not be resolved in a peaceful way".

A senior White House official said Pyongyang would be a key test for the Trump-Xi relationship.

Moreover, comments by Xi suggest that a U.S. military strike against Syria, ordered by Trump shortly before the two presidents met, didn't sour the friendly tone of the summit.

Trump and Xi were first introduced to reporters with their wives, seated on couches in a palatial room at Mar-a-Lago.

China and the United States should expand their cooperation in addressing global challenges, such as non-proliferation and the fight against cross-border crimes, Xi said. -China summit was upstaged by US missile strikes overnight against a Syrian air base from which Trump said a deadly chemical weapon attack had been launched earlier in the week.

North Korea is working to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the United States. My guess is that Trump and his advisers were so preoccupied with monitoring the situation in Syria that they opted to punt for now on wrangling with China.

"He asked about reaction from the world community as well as congressional leaders and was informed that there was fairly unanimous praise for the decision and the actions the president took", Spicer said. They reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearization of the divided Korean Peninsula. Before the summit, trade disputes and North Korea's nuclear and missile programme were tipped to top the list of discussions between Trump and Xi.

Before his meeting, Trump extended an olive branch by promising to honor the One China Policy - meaning the USA will maintain formal ties with China and not Taiwan.

"I don't expect a grand bargain on trade".
