Taiwan in touch with US during Xi visit: Ministry

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that it will maintain close contact with the US on the meeting between President Donald Trump and the Chinese president, Xi Jinping. That's the word from the foreign ministry spokesperson Eleanor Wang on Friday.

The two leaders are meeting for the first time since Trump took office in January. The summit is being held at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Prior to the meeting, Matt Pottinger, senior director of Asian affairs of the National Security Council, and Susan Thornton, acting assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, gave reassurances that the meeting will not involve a trade-off on Taiwan.
