Beijing has criticised Washington's aggressive trade policy for its "harmful consequences" and has implemented reciprocal measures on more than $60 billion in U.S. imports.
No less a figure than Larry Kudlow, the director of the White House's National Economic Council, emphasized the importance of the discussions on November 27. However, according to the past protocols of Xi's diplomatic summit meetings, the president could bring his chief of staff, Ding Xuexiang; his top diplomat, Yang Jiechi; foreign minister Wang Yi; and commerce minister Zhong Shan, in addition to Liu He, the vice-premier in charge of trade talks with the US.

In the past 20 years China has grown rapidly to become arguably Washington's biggest security rival, with defence spending that now far outstrips former Cold War rival Russian Federation. Pence, who stood in for Trump at the meetings, mirrored Washington's labelling of Beijing as a "strategic competitor" in key national security documents such as the National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy.
"I will tell you that I think China wants to make a deal", he continued. "Our security measures will be very strong and the decisions that we will make if there is violence will be immediate".
SHANGHAI-China and the United States can reach a trade agreement at the G20 meeting in Argentina this week, the state-run China Daily newspaper said in an editorial on Friday, but Washington must be "fair minded" if it wants to defuse spiralling tensions.

As President Donald Trump prepares to sit down with China's President Xi this weekend, Trump said Thursday that the administration is "very close" to reaching a deal to end the trade showdown between the two major economies even as he also sought to downplay the importance of making such a deal. First, the Trump administration's tougher approach to China - while often crude in its articulation (especially on trade) - is grounded in long-standing bipartisan concerns about Beijing's behaviour and its effect on the United States and its allies in the region.
