The Heat: China-US ties

The Heat

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence is in Asia, to represent the United States at ASEAN meetings taking place in Singapore – as well as APEC meetings that will follow in Papua New Guinea.

And at the end of the month, U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping, during the G-20 Summit in Argentina.

A possible trade deal will dominate the discussion, but the two countries can stabilize their relationship by cooperating on a range of issues – from terrorism to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Last Friday, high-level Chinese and U.S. officials met for a second round of diplomatic and security talks.
