China Open to Meeting Trump Aids in Davos

China’s President Xi Jinping’s delegation to the World Economic Forum (WEF) to be held in Davos next week is open to a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump’s team, according to the Associated Press, citing a remark made by an official on Wednesday.

The AP article quotes Vice Foreign Minister Li Baodong telling reporters at a press briefing that “there are open channels of communication” with Trump’s delegation.

The open stance comes despite Trump having berated China in a series of tweets in recent months, accusing the country of protectionism and threatening to impose punitive barriers to its imports.
