BEIJING: The Chinese foreign ministry on Tuesday said it had "no information to offer at present" on a possible meeting between president Xi Jinping and his US counterpart to avert a trade war. As trade tensions escalated between the two countries, Donald Trump on Monday told reporters that he expects to meet with the president of China and Russia next month at the Group of 20 summit in Japan. "The two heads of state maintain contact through various means," foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular briefing on Tuesday. But when asked whether China was making preparations for a possible Xi-Trump meeting, Geng said: "I have no information at present about the specific question raised."
