Xi end 1st summit with 100-day plan to avoid trade row

According to a Friday report by NBC, the US National Security Council has suggested to Trump and his advisors that nuclear weapons could be returned to South Korea, or that an assassination could be staged to take the life of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

But the attack drew speculation from some Taiwanese media that Trump had an unsubtle message for Xi that the United States would not take a passive stance against North Korea.

Trump and Xi discussed issues concerning North Korea as well according to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

China welcomes the USA to participate in cooperation within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, and proposes to enhance military dialogue mechanisms and strength communication in major global and regional affairs, it said. Instead, the U.S. will explore a range of military options, alongside diplomatic, security and economic measures.

A U.S. strike would not resolve the issue but further complicate the issue.

But in public Mr Xi stuck to his script about the virtues of co-operation while Mr Trump insisted they'd formed an outstanding relationship and made great progress.

"They agreed to increase cooperation and work with the worldwide community to convince North Korea to peacefully resolve the issue and dismantle its illegal nuclear and missile programs", the White House said.

In a possible harbinger of the kind of punishments Washington could inflict, a leading Chinese telecoms company, ZTE, was fined almost USD900 million in March for shipping sensitive US -made technology to Iran in violation of USA sanctions. He's also criticized China for grabbing jobs that could otherwise go to Americans. But, not before calling his first face-to-face encounter with U.S. President Donald Trump a "success".

North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the sea off the Korean Peninsula earlier this week, the latest in a series of recent test firings. "I think it's absurd, it's wrongheaded, and, frankly, intellectually dishonest". "They agreed to work together in the interim to ensure a successful and results-focused visit", Spicer said.

"My delegation has been warmly received and welcomed by President Trump".

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.

"We have made tremendous progress in our relationship with China", Trump told reporters as the two delegations met around tables flanked by large USA and Chinese flags.

"The meetings, positive and fruitful, mark a new starting point for the world's most important bilateral relationship, which will not only benefit the two countries but also the world at large", the commentary said.

"This escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaida and other terrorists and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russian Federation".

Xi was said to have shared that North Korea has "reached a very serious stage" in the advancement of its nuclear capabilities, Tillerson said.
