UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Chinese President Xi Jinping described his US counterpart Donald Trump on Friday as a friend and said he believed the United States did not want to spoil economic ties with China.

Speaking in the Russian city of St. Petersburg during an economic forum, Xi said trade and investment relations between China and the United States are strong.

“It is hard to imagine the complete separation of the United States from China or China’s complete secession from the United States,” he said in Chinese, translated into Russian and translated into English. We do not want that and our American partners do not want that. President Trump is my friend and I am sure he does not want that.”
