U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Branstad on Monday said that the upcoming Xi-Trump meeting was "very historic and significant."
"There are a lot of excitement and feelings that this could be very historic and significant for Trump-Xi meeting here," Branstad said during a group interview in Beijing.
U.S. President Donald Trump's upcoming state visit to China, from Nov. 8 to 10, will see his third meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
"I think the chemistry between the two leaders is good and that bodes well. If the two leaders can get along well and work out some of the differences, hopefully that can help the rest of us to work things out well," he said.
