When the American missiles "Tomahawk" fired at an air base in Syria, President Donald trump and his Chinese counterpart XI Jinping sat down for dinner in the estate of trump's "Mar-a-Lago".
The two leaders met for the first time, but something that would be a great opportunity to establish a personal connection and recalibrate most important bilateral relationship in the world, was overshadowed by the largest military actions of President trump.
Trump decided to hit the airfield "Sirat" just before lunch with si. The Chinese delegation left before 9 PM. Shortly after that, trump turned to reporters and explained why he allowed the attack. Now, when attention is focused on the conflict in Syria, the potential benefits from the summit are threatened. It was expected that they will discuss North Korea and its aggressive pursuit of nuclear technology.
China condemned the use of chemical weapons in any form and stated that the country opposes the use of force in international Affairs. "We have always believed that the Syrian issue should be resolved by political means", - said the representative of the foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying. China supported Russia, which condemned the attack, and vetoed a resolution against Syria in the UN Security Council.
Concern for the Chinese, is that trump has shown that he is not afraid to take military action unilaterally. This attack can strengthen the position of the trump in negotiations with si.
