'Only time will tell' on improving US-China trade
In an analysis, Xinhua also said Mr Trump had ordered the strike to distance himself from Syria's backers in Moscow, to overcome accusations that he was "pro-Russia". The report did not name the official, which is common in KCNA reports.
Beijing's most powerful leader in decades also invited the neophyte U.S. president on a coveted state visit to China later in the year. And according to Tillerson, the Chinese president told Trump that he "understood that such a response was necessary when people are killing children" and expressed "appreciation" that the president took the time to explain the details of and objective behind the strike on the Syrian airfield.
That was certainly the case before President Xi Jinping and his United States counterpart Donald Trump started their two-day summit at the American leader's Florida estate.
"We assess that they were relatively successful talks that laid the groundwork for cooperation between the two leaders and the development of the U.S". Now, he said, they could use the strike to apply pressure, warning that the regime might be subject to more if they don't cooperate.
North Korea on Sunday condemned the U.S. bombing in Syria as an "absolutely unacceptable aggression" against a sovereign state and said this justifies Pyongyang's further military development.
North Korea lashed out at the US missile strike on a Syrian air base, calling it an "absolutely unpardonable" act that only justifies its nuclear-weapons program.
"Our decisions", Trump said in his Saturday address, "will be guided by our values and our goals - and we will reject the path of inflexible ideology that too often leads to unintended consequences".
-China trade more balanced.
Nevertheless, the strikes against Assad's government in Syria - which Pyongyang considers an ally - are likely to have added weight in the North's eyes to Trump's recent threat to act unilaterally against North Korea's weapons program.
Throughout his campaign Trump had tirelessly slammed China. If we believed the Trump administration would strike again whenever Assad committed a war crime, we might be able to tailor a foreign or defence policy around this. -China talks could bear progress in the North Korean nuclear issue, the ministry noted. North Korea denied involvement in that attack. "That would create chaos".
As if to underline the point, North Korean state media released photos of a smiling Kim inspecting a mushroom farm.
So far, Assad's ability to use chemical weapons does not seem significantly degraded.
But while Trump had taken a tough line on China before the meeting with his "America first" policy, he now realises that pragmatism is in his country's interests. Many members were like Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Gilbert, who praised the action on one hand while noting that Congress needs to be consulted if it is more than just a one-time action.
Rather than continue its tough talk on North Korea, Markey told CNN's "New Day" on Thursday that Trump should ask Xi "to tighten the screws" with economic sanctions. "The objective is for us to increase our exports to them". "I don't like to say where I'm going and what I'm doing", he said.
"This was Trump's first major move in global affairs, and it leaves an impression that the decision was made in haste and not without contradiction", the newspaper said.
On Friday, senior US military officials were looking more closely at possible Russian involvement in the poison attack. After announcing the attack Thursday evening, he made no mention of it Friday during public appearances, nor on Saturday during his weekly address.
The U.S. companies had been lobbying Congress to grant China most-favored-nation treatment every year before China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, the CCG wrote.
Trump has repeatedly hammered China for exporting more to the US than it buys.
"The two leaders had positive and productive meetings".
Still, Ford Chief Executive Officer Mark Field said the meeting was encouraging and sets the stage for the world's two largest economies to strengthen ties.
