U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not plan to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping before a March 1 deadline set by the two countries to achieve a trade deal, Reuters writes.
Asked during an event in the Oval Office whether there would be a meeting before the deadline, Trump said: "No."
Chinese President Xi Jinping called for a return to "unity and harmony" on Jan. 31 as he welcomed gas-rich Qatar's emir to Beijing, amid a festering dispute that has seen some Arab states lead by Saudi Arabia severing relations with Doha.
Vucic on the occasion expressed his confidence that her tenure in Belgrade would leave"a special mark on the steely Sino-Serbian friendship," Tanjug reported, citing a a press release from the president's office.
Chen, who presented her credentials to Vucic, conveyed to him the greetings of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
