原文：Donald Trump says China trade talks are ‘back on track’
Donald Trump said talks with China were “back on track” after what he called an “excellent” meeting with Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Osaka.
“We had a very good meeting with President Xi of China. Excellent, I would say excellent. As good as it was going to be,” Mr Trump said. “We discussed a lot of things and we’re right back on track. And we’ll see what happens but we had a really good meeting.”
Mr Trump said at a press conference following the meeting that he had agreed not to impose new tariffs for now. “We agreed that I would not be putting tariffs on $325bn that I would have the ability to put on,” he said.
The US president also appeared to soften his previous stance on Huawei, the Chinese telecoms group. The Trump administration earlier this year put Huawei on the so-called Entity List which made it much harder for US companies to sell to the Chinese company. But Mr Trump on Saturday said he had decided that “US companies can sell their equipment to Huawei”.
Asked if he was considering removing Huawei from the Entity List, Mr Trump said: “We are looking at that very carefully.”
G20 leaders have been watching closely to see if the leaders of the world’s two biggest economies could reach an agreement to end a bitter trade war that has escalated over the past year. The two sides were approaching a deal when talks collapsed at the last minute in early May, prompting both sides to blame the other.
The US-China trade truce follows a similar pattern to last year when Mr Trump and Mr Xi met at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires in an attempt to find a resolution to a dispute that has seen the imposition of tit-for-tat tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese and American exports.
Trade has been the main focus of this year’s two-day summit. Mr Xi on Saturday accused rich countries of engaging in protectionism that was “destroying the global trade order”. Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister, recognised that globalisation had sparked a “sharp confrontation” between countries, but stressed that governments should ensure that all trade measures complied with World Trade Organization rules.
Mr Trump told reporters before his meeting with Mr Xi that the pair had become friends that he believed they would be able to forge an agreement.
“As you know, we’ve had an excellent relationship, but we want to do something that will even it up with respect to trade,” Mr Trump said. “I think it’s something that’s actually very easy to do.”
“I actually think that we were very close and then . . . something happened where it slipped a little bit, and now we’re getting a little bit closer,” Mr Trump added in public remarks to Mr Xi.
Separately, Mr Trump on Saturday extended an invitation to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the demilitarised zone that divides the Korean peninsula when he visits South Korea after the G20.
“After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon),” Mr Trump tweeted. “While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!
The White House is making preparations for a meeting by drafting an official invitation which North Korea requested following the tweet, according to a person familiar with the situation.
If Mr Trump meets Mr Kim, it would be the third meeting between the two leaders, following their landmark first summit in Singapore last year and a second meeting in Hanoi in February.
