At the 13th G20 Summit in Argentina, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Trump reached an agreement on December 1. It was decided there would be a 90-day pause before fresh tariffs were imposed. The two sides agreed to step up negotiations during the truce to remove all additional tariffs and reach a win-win deal.
Xi had three meetings with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, playing a constructive role in persuading Kim to return to dialogue. Kim also held historic meetings with Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in on peace and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in the border village of Panmunjom. A joint Panmunjom Declaration was issued after the Kim-Moon meeting, confirming their common goal of complete denuclearization of the peninsula.
