Obama and Xi: all smiles as 'veteran cadres' reunite in Beijing

Dec 01 , 2017

Former US president Barack Obama has met with Chinese president Xi Jinping in Beijing just weeks after Donald Trump made a state visit to China.

The two were all smiles during the meeting and Chinese media fawned over Obama and Xi, dubbing the pair “veteran cadres”, a term typically applied to retired Communist officials. But in a sign of the diplomatic sensitivity, Chinese state media reported on the event in a single terse article.

“Xi made a positive appraisal of Obama’s efforts in promoting China-US relations during his presidency,” according to a report by state news agency Xinhua.
