Chinese President Xi Jinping brought a warning to President Donald Trump when the two sat down for high-stakes talks in Osaka, telling his counterparty that & # 39; cooperation & # 39; was better than & # 39; confrontation & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Collaboration and dialogue are better than friction and confrontation & # 39 ;, said the Chinese leader at the top of a bilateral meeting on Saturday in Osaka, recognizing the increasing combative trade in financial markets.
& # 39; China (s), the United States both benefit from cooperation and lose their exterior, & # 39; Xi said to him.
The Chinese leader opened his carefully written comments by the & # 39; Ping Pong diplomacy & # 39; from 1971, which helped open the door to the historic restoration of relations between the US and China in 1979.
& # 39; The small ball played a major role in moving world events, & # 39; said Xi through a translator.

But he quickly goes on to his most important message that the two nations must find a way to end a trade war that China deems counterproductive, but that has also slowed the economy.
Trump responded to Xi with his own remarks referring to Chinese anti-competitive trade practices. & # 39; We want to do something that even happens with respect for trade & # 39 ;, Trump said.
Trump referred to trade negotiations that broke off months ago when he said on previous occasions that China was recoiling from the commitments it had made. He only hinted at that delay in his brief remarks for the global media.

& # 39; I actually think we were very close, but something happened where it slipped. It would be historic if we could conclude a fair trade agreement. We are completely open to it, & said Trump.
Trump resisted the temptation to answer press questions in the midst of the high stakes, without tilting his hand further and telling the media & thank you & # 39 ;.
Unlike his happy handover with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday – where he smiled when he told Russia not to interfere with US elections – Trump kept a serious expression on his face while being photographed with Xi.
But as he often does, Trump showed his admiration for Chinese culture and Xi – with references to his own personal experiences.
& # 39; We have had a lot of time together and we have become friends & # 39 ;, Trump said.
Trump focused some of his comments on his own experiences. & # 39; My trip to Beijing with my family was one of the most incredible of my life & # 39 ;, Trump said. & # 39; I have seen a culture that you would rarely see & # 39 ;, he said and added: & # 39; Chinese culture is an incredible culture. & # 39;
& # 39; We have had an excellent relationship, but we want to do something that can even be combined with trade with respect. I think it's something that is actually very easy to do, & said Trump.
The two leaders met because Trump is threatening to impose $ 300 extra rates in the midst of the escalating trade war.
Trump said before the meeting: & at least it will be productive. We will see what happens tomorrow. It will be a very exciting day, I know that for sure. Hopefully it will work out well for both countries. & # 39;
He previously met the crown prince of Saudi Arabia and announced on Twitter that he would visit the DMZ during a trip to South Korea.
Trump even said he was North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un & # 39; two minutes & # 39; may meet to shake hands with him – provided he is in his own country and wants to meet.
