A few days after the US election, China’s Xi Jinping gave an ominous warning to Obama — and to Trump
"We prefer to have a good relationship with the United States," Chinese President Xi Jinping told US President Barack Obama. "That is good for the world. But every action will have a reaction."
China has repeatedly proposed a 'dual suspension' initiative for North Korea, in which Pyongyang suspends its nuclear programme in exchange for the US and South Korea to suspend joint military exercises. Trump appears to have come around to that view by proposing in Singapore to halt war games.
President Donald Trump is starting to backtrack on the China trade agreement just days after praising the deal. The reason is unclear but it may have to do with the breakdown of North Korea summit talks and the heavy criticism of the deal from both parties.
Trump calls out China for helping North Korea — and it highlights how Kim Jong Un is winning the talks
ANALYSIS: If Kim Jong Un's diplomacy has bought him more economic support from China, then he's gained a massive boost for the talks. If Kim drives a wedge between Washington and Beijing, there's little else President Trump can do to pressure North Korea besides war.
China's firm stance and refusal to budge apparently didn't scrap the talks, as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin emerged Saturday saying the trade war and associated tariffs were, for now, "on hold."
Senate Republicans are warning Trump about the risks of his plan to get Chinese smartphone giant ZTE back in business
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are skeptical that President Donald Trump is up to the task of properly assessing and combatting the security risks posed by Chinese smartphone maker ZTE, suggesting the White House is taking a predominantly economic approach to resolve disputes with one of the world's largest smartphone companies.
OPINION: The signs that China and North Korea are playing Trump were subtle until Sunday when he tweeted that he would back down from punishing a Chinese company that violated sanctions against North Korea and Iran. Now it's clear Trump's much vaunted deal making ability will not be applied here.
ZTE, which has more than 70,000 employees and has supplied networks or equipment to some of the world's biggest telecoms companies, said in early May that it had halted its main operations as a result of the US Commerce Department's "denial order."
Vintage video of Kim Jong Un and Xi Jinping’s dads on a diplomatic trip in 1983 shows their deep family bond
Footage recorded for state media in 1983 shows Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un's father, sitting next to Xi Zhongxu, Xi Jinping's father, when a North Korean delegation visited China. Their sons later rose to the highest levels of power in their respective nations, and make similar visits to each other.
