China says Xi-Trump meeting will be of great significance to both sides


Comments by senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi

In other words, expect it to be a whole lot of hot air being blown with very little to show for. I expect both sides to express more positive tones after the meeting – more from Trump – but I highly doubt we’ll get any breakthrough on the trade dispute between the two nations.

This strategic battle is going to drag on for quite a while longer, that is for sure. In short, don’t expect much going into the meeting as you’d likely end up being disappointed after.
