Washington DC [USA], Nov 1 (ANI): Amid the brewing trade war between Washington and Beijing, United States President Donald Trump on Thursday had a "long and very good" discussion with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on trade.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Trump said that discussions "moving along nicely" and would continue at the G-20 summit in Argentina, adding that he and Xi also discussed North Korea.
"Just had a long and very good conversation with President Xi Jinping of China. We talked about many subjects, with a heavy emphasis on Trade. Those discussions are moving along nicely with meetings being scheduled at the G-20 in Argentina. Also had a good discussion on North Korea!" Trump wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Both China and the US have been locked in an increasingly bitter trade war in the past few months, with both the nations slapping tariffs on each other's imports, leading to the straining of ties between the world's two largest economies.
The Trump administration has been imposing tariffs on various countries, including China, claiming that the US was "being treated unfairly in trade" and accusing Beijing of "stealing intellectual property". On the other hand, China chided the US for indulging in "trade bullying. (ANI)
