Trump’s first state visit to China presents an opportunity for the two countries’ leaders to build on their working relationship and tackle looming issues in the bilateral relationship like trade and security.
The gap between the Chinese and U.S. views on North Korea is too deep and fundamental, and any illusion it can be bridged in a relatively short period of time will only set the two powers on a path to collision with each other.
