Special arrangements set for Trump’s visit
China will make high-standard arrangements for the reception of US President Donald Trump and fully prepare to ensure that the upcoming visit will be historic and successful, said a senior diplomat.
Trump’s visit to China from Wednesday to Friday will be the first by a head of state to China since the Communist Party of China’s 19th National Congress, which ended on Oct 24, and it comes at a significant moment in China-US relations, said Zheng Zeguang, vice-foreign minister.
Apart from regular arrangements such as a welcoming ceremony, formal talks, reception banquet and meeting with the media, China has also set some informal interaction procedures that will provide sufficient time for the two presidents to fully exchange views on major issues that jointly concern the two sides, Zheng said.
In April, when President Xi Jinping visited Mar-aLago resort in Florida, Trump arranged for a considerate and grand reception for Xi, and in return, China will also make some special arrangements for the US president, Zheng added.
According to the vice-minister, the two presidents will exchange views on hot topics such as bilateral trade and the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
Zheng said he is optimistic about the future of China-US
