Trump says meeting with China's Xi scheduled on sidelines of G20 summit

Washington, Jun 11 (Sputnik/UNI) US President Donald Trump said he has scheduled talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the G20 summit in Japan later in June.

"We are scheduled to talk and to meet, I think interesting things will happen," Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.


Earlier on Monday, Trump said in an interview with CNBC that if Xi did not meet him at the G20, tariffs on $300 billion worth of goods would go into effect immediately.
The United States and China have been trying to overcome disagreements that emerged in the wake of Trump’s decision last June to impose the 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods in a bid to fix the trade deficit. Since then, the sides have exchanged several rounds of duties.


Washington escalated the dispute earlier in May when it included another $200 billion worth of Chinese goods in the 25 percent tariff category. Beijing pledged to retaliate by hiking tariffs on $60 billion worth of US imports starting in June.


The G20 Summit will take place in Japan's Osaka from June 28-29.
