PM Modi, Xi Jinping Meet On Sidelines Of G20 Summit In Argentina

AFP | Donald Trump arrived in Buenos Aires late Thursday for the G20 meeting and crunch trade talks with Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping

"Maybe I won't have the meeting", Trump said, according to The Washington Post.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday interacted with US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin and British Prime Minister Theresa May ahead of the G-20 summit here.

The prospect of tariffs of 25 percent on imported autos and parts has sent shockwaves through the auto industry, with both US and foreign-brand producers lobbying against it and warning that national security tariffs on European Union and Japanese vehicles could dramatically raise the price of many vehicles.

USA and Chinese officials have been working for weeks on the contours of a possible deal for the two leaders to be announced following their dinner on Saturday on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires and a road map for talks to follow.

"It's a cat-and-mouse game between two very strong-willed leaders, strong governments", Burns said.

In the lead-up to Saturday's dinner Trump has oscillated between trying to appear tough and committed to his tariffs-driven strategy and opening the door to a deal with Xi.

Mexico to deport asylum seekers who tried to breach USA border
The migrants have travelled in large groups, dubbed " caravans ", for more than 4,000km (2,500 miles) from Central America. Trump portrays them as a threat to United States national security, intent on exploiting America's asylum law.

The United States has levied additional duties of between 10 percent and 25 percent on $250 billion of Chinese goods this year as punishment for what it calls China's unfair trade practices, with the 10 percent tariffs set to climb to 25 percent next year.

However, others pointed out that no one knows how much and for how long the output cuts will be, while at the same time the U.S. continues to ramp up production.

"I hope that the United States and China could move towards each other and work hard to achieve positive results in the meeting", Gao said, without giving any details. -China trade war involving tit-for-tat tariffs on each other's imports. "Otherwise, lets just make our Country richer than ever before!"

The G20 meeting comes as global economic growth may be slowing more than expected, the International Monetary Fund warned.

A Chinese response to US demands sent earlier this month amounted to a rehash of previous commitments and pledges that Xi had made in recent speeches, according to people familiar with the discussions.

The U.S. Commerce Department has circulated draft recommendations to the White House on its investigation into whether to impose tariffs of up to 25 percent on imported cars and parts on national security grounds, Reuters reported earlier this month. Hawks in his administration have also been eager to see broader changes in Chinese industrial and technology policy.
