Trump China visit: US leader strikes warmer tone with Xi Jinping
US President Donald Trump has struck a warmer tone in China, praising leader Xi Jinping on his handling of the North Korean nuclear threat. At the same time, he urged Mr Xi to "work very hard" on persuading North Korea to denuclearise. Mr Trump also surprised many when he said he does "not blame China" for "taking advantage" of the US, in reference to their trade deficit.
The US president was speaking in Beijing while on a state visit. He is in the Chinese capital as part of his five-nation tour of Asia. The two leaders held talks earlier on Thursday after a grand welcome for Mr Trump. Discussion on how to deal with North Korea's threats to the region has dominated Mr Trump's agenda and China is Pyongyang's main economic ally.
Mr Xi and Mr Trump also announced that their countries had signed $250bn (£190bn) in business deals during Mr Trump's visit, although it is unclear how much of that figure is past deals being re-announced or potential deals.
