President Donald Trump is tentatively set to meet in coming weeks with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, The Wall Street Journal reports. Two Chinese officials said the leaders are expected to meet for the first time in April at Trump’s private club in Florida, Mar-a-Lago. White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Monday wouldn’t confirm a date or location but said “planning is ongoing” for a visit between the two leaders to help defuse tensions over North Korea and the deployment by the US of a missile-defense system in South Korea. The US and China have been moving to smooth relations since Trump reaffirmed US commitment to the “One China” policy in a phone call last month. Chinese leaders were especially alarmed when Trump suggested in January that he would review the longstanding policy. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will meet with senior Chinese officials in Beijing later this week.
