Jumping children, soldiers greet Trump in Beijing

Mr Donald Trump and his wife were treated to an opera performance on a stage that had not been used for 100 years

"During President Trump's China visit, he and President Xi will discuss many important issues and the US-China trade relationship is sure to be at or near the top of the list", he said.

US President Donald Trump has praised his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping during a visit to Beijing.

In a show of the importance China puts on Trump's first official visit, Thursday morning's welcoming ceremony outside Great Hall of the People overlooking Tiananmen Square was broadcast live on state television - unprecedented treatment for a visiting leader. "Now, with that being said, he represents China, I represent the USA, so, you know, there's going to always be conflict", Trump recently told the Fox Business Network.

Ivanka Trump frequently posts videos of Arabella speaking or singing in Chinese to her social media accounts, and she brought her daughter to a Chinese New Year event organised by the Chinese embassy in Washington.

Mr Trump wants China to do more to rein in North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, which not only threaten the security of Asia but are also beginning to possibly threaten the US.

Despite the public bonhomie, the two leaders were expected to have had tough discussions behind closed doors.

At the same time, Taipei is pursuing a number of policies that seem designed to curry favor with the Trump administration, including modest defense spending increases, a proposed bilateral trade agreement and a ban on all trade with North Korea.

"Emphasising pomp over substance is the Chinese way".

Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, showed Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, around the Forbidden City, homes of ancient Chinese emperors, and hosted a two-hour official dinner for them there.

One woman on the streets of Pyongyang called Trump's assertion "foolish", "absurd" and another word CNN cannot print. But it remains unclear how far China will go to fulfill its pledges.

"The flattery will not have significant substantive effect", said Sam Crane a Chinese history expert at Williams College.

"I think that if you look at the activity across that border, certainly there is still some trade taking place", the official said.

Donald Trump has thumbed his nose at China's draconian censorship regime as he touched down in Beijing on the latest leg of his 12-day east Asian tour.

In Beijing, Trump will seek to persuade President Xi Jinping to do more to pressure his country's Cold War era-ally North Korea to drop its nuclear ambitions. Trump has long railed against China's massive trade surplus with the United States.

"You cannot support, you cannot supply, you cannot accept", Trump said.

"We have to fix this", he said.

But he warned Pyongyang in a speech to "not underestimate us".

But the Chinese authorities aren't beyond making exceptions to the rules. "If he works on it hard it will happen". APquoted the chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China, William Zarit, who expressed concern that Trump's focus on trade in goods would neglect "structural issues".

Justin Hastings, a China-North Korea trade analyst at the University of Sydney, said the two countries might have discussed an approach towards North Korea, but the outcome would not be disclosed.
