Xi, Trump Discuss Trade, Korean Peninsula over Phone

BEIJING - Chinese President Xi Jinping and his U.S. counterpart, Donald Trump, on Tuesday discussed bilateral trade and the situation on the Korean Peninsula by phone.

China-U.S. relations maintained overall stability and achieved significant progress in 2017, said Xi in the phone call. Keeping bilateral ties on a track of healthy and stable development is in the interests of both countries and both peoples, and conforms to the common aspiration of the international community, the Chinese president said.
The two sides need to maintain high-level and various levels of interactions, bring the four high-level dialogue mechanisms between them into full play, and hold the second round of dialogues at a proper time, Xi said. As economic and trade cooperation brings tangible benefits to both peoples, the two countries should adopt constructive measures to properly settle economic and trade issues of mutual concern by opening up the market to each other and “making the cake of cooperation bigger,” Xi added.
