US-China ties: US Secretary of State delivers Trump's message to Xi Jinping

BEIJING: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met President Xi Jinping of China for 30 minutes on Sunday in Beijing and told him that US President Donald Trump anticipates a meeting "soon," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement.

Xi and Tillerson agreed that opportunities existed for greater cooperation between the two countries, though differences remain, Toner said. 

Tillerson ended his first trip to Asia since taking office with an agreement to work with China on North Korea.
