Tough Issues Await Trump, Xi Behind Closed Doors

Tough Issues Await Trump, Xi Behind Closed Doors

November 08, 2017 04:24 PM

BEIJING (AP) - President Donald Trump's visit to China has opened with diplomatic niceties aplenty from Chinese President Xi Jinping, but thorny issues await the two world leaders behind closed doors.
    
Among them are potential tensions over trade and China's willingness to put the squeeze on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.
    
Before his arrival, Trump issued a stern message to Beijing, using an address to the National Assembly in South Korea to call on nations to confront the North.
    
White House officials said Trump would make the same pitch to Xi in private when the two sit down together Thursday.
    
China is North Korea's largest trading partner and Trump is expected to demand that the nation curtail its dealings with Pyongyang and expel North Korean workers from its borders.
