Larry Kudlow, the White House economic director, said on "Fox News Sunday" that President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will "probably meet" at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires in late November.

China has made the sale at a time when yuan has depreciated 10 percent against the dollar amid an escalating trade war with the US. "It's clear that there couldn't have been a different answer", Peskov added.
"There's a good mutual understanding and good working relationship between the two. I hope, and I'm sure, this will continue", Cui said.
"But I rely on them, it's not in our country", Trump said, referring either to British accusations against Russia, or Russian denials thereof.
