China hopes the upcoming visit of US President Donald Trump will bring bilateral ties to a new high, said Cui Tiankai, Chinese Ambassador to the US, on Friday.

Trump is scheduled to visit Asia in November for the first time as president. At the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping, he will make a stop in China.
“We believe that Trump’s visit will be held as scheduled and both sides will achieve satisfactory results,” the ambassador told reporters at an embassy event in Washington.
Since President Xi’s visit to the US in April, the two leaders have developed a good working relationship and a personal friendship, said Cui.
The conversations between the two leaders in the past have provided a good strategic direction for both the countries and set a constructive tone, the ambassador added.
