Washington, Apr 11: US President, Donald Trump’s meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping in Florida last week was “unbelievably helpful” and “productive”, an official statement issued by White House said on Monday.
“I think we had an unbelievably helpful and productive meeting with the Chinese,” White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer told reporters at his daily news conference.
One of the most significant developments from these discussions was the agreement to create a 100-day initial plan, hopefully with some tangible near-term deliverables, to lead to a more balanced economic relationship between the two countries, Spicer added.
Trump and Xi last week held their first summit at Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where they announced a 100-day plan to improve strained trade ties, the only tangible announcement after their meetings that were overshadowed by the US military strikes in Syria.
“As that develops, we’ll make sure that we provide you with additional details,” Spicer concluded. PTI
