BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s foreign ministry said on Friday it hopes the United States will meet China halfway and ensure their meeting is a success, when asked about talks between the Chinese and U.S. presidents on the sidelines of a G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang made the comments at a daily news briefing in Beijing.

U.S President Donald Trump’s decision on whether to impose new tariffs on a $300 billion list of nearly all remaining Chinese imports will depend on the outcome of the Saturday meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Thursday.
