US President Donald Trump said on Monday that he expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Osaka at the end of June.
Trump accepted the US Financial News Channel CNBC earlier in the same day, saying that if Xi Jinping does not go to the G20 summit, he will immediately raise the tariff on Chinese goods.
He said: “The Chinese government is currently suffering from the company’s departure and travel to other countries, including our (US) companies because they do not want to pay customs duties.” He said: “China will reach an agreement because they need it. “
Trump also commented on China’s monetary policy, saying that China has devalued its currency, which is something that needs to be dealt with because it leads to unfair competition.
However, although the United States has repeatedly mentioned the news that the US and Chinese heads of state met in Osaka, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has never confirmed whether the Chinese and American leaders will meet during the G20 summit. It only indicates that specific news will be released in time.
