Trump congratulates China's Xi on 'extraordinary elevation'

Oct 26 , 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping to congratulate him on a new leadership line-up unveiled at the Communist Party Congress in Beijing.

The two also discussed North Korea and trade, Trump said in a Twitter post.

“Spoke to President Xi of China to congratulate him on his extraordinary elevation. Also discussed NoKo & trade, two very important subjects!” Trump wrote.

Xi told Trump China would “unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development” and promote “coordination and cooperation among world major powers”, the official Xinhua news agency reported late on Wednesday.

"He's a powerful man. I happen to think he's a very good person," Mr Trump said, describing their relationship as notably strong.
