It was quite the weekend in Asia.
First — in Osaka, Japan where U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met on the sideline of the G20 summit. The two leaders agreed to put additional tariffs on hold – for now – and resume negotiations over a potential trade deal.
Then to the DMZ — where President Trump crossed into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, jump-starting dormant nuclear talks between the two countries.
