China and the US will achieve “significant outcomes” on economic and trade issues and deepen cooperation towards containing the North Korean nuclear threat when President Donald Trump meets President Xi Jinping next month in Beijing, China’s ambassador to the US said in Washington, the South China Morning Post reports. At the same time, Ambassador Cui Tiankai warned in a press briefing at the Chinese embassy that nobody would “be able to contain China” – a reference to the Trump administration’s intention to help India balance China’s power in the Asia-Pacific region. “I’m quite confident there will be significant outcomes on the economic and trade fronts,” Cui told reporters. A trade surplus, “in the long run, will not help China’s economy. It might even hurt China’s economy.” Cui said he expected Xi and Trump to reach more agreements on removing nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula and give “clear guidance on how two countries could handle this issue together.”
