WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will discuss how to rein in North Korea with Chinese President Xi Jinping later this week in what a senior White House official said on Tuesday was a test for the U.S.-Chinese relationship.
Briefing reporters on the Trump-Xi meetings, the official said the president sees the meeting as the first step in a "results-oriented relationship" and that he wants economic ties that are fair, balanced and based on reciprocity.
