United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s trip to China this week is expected to pave the way for Donald Trump’s first visit to China as US president later this year. Trump’s visit will be an opportunity for him and Chinese President Xi Jinping to further develop a relationship that began warmly, but has been tested lately by the Korean Peninsula issue and trade disputes.
