Trump tweeted yesterday that he had good talk with President Xi over the phone on the issues of U.S.-China trade deal, North Korea and Hong Kong. What did President Xi say about this phone conversation?
Xi emphasized that the development of Sino-US economic and trade cooperation has made important contributions to the stable development of Sino-US relations and the world economic development. Modern economy and modern technology have united the world, and the interests of China and the United States have become more integrated. There will be some differences in the cooperation between the two sides. As long as the two sides always grasp the mainstream of Sino-US economic and trade cooperation, mutual benefit and win-win, and always respect the dignity, sovereignty, and core interests of the other country, they will be able to overcome the difficulties in the advance and promote the development of Sino-US economic and trade relations under the new historical conditions for the benefit of two countries. Xi Jinping also mentioned that we have expressed grave concern over the recent negative actions of the United States on issues related to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet issues. These practices interfered with China’s internal affairs, harmed China’s interests, and were not conducive to mutual trust and cooperation. It is hoped that the United States will earnestly implement the important consensus that have been accomplished through our many meetings and phone calls, pay close attention to China’s concerns, and prevent the relations between the two countries and important agendas from being disturbed.
