President Trump has targeted China as a threat to the US and appeared to shun the longstanding "one China" policy during the transition by having a phone call with Taiwan.

Xi is set to visit the United States for a summit possibly aimed at reduction of tensions between the two countries.

Moreover, Yang met separately with Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during his visit. The pair would have a wide range of issues to discuss, including the North Korean threat, trade and disputed territory in the South China Sea.

Trump back-tracked during a February phone call with Xi, telling his Chinese counterpart he would recognize the "One China" policy.

The then-U.S. president-elect also publicly toyed with the idea that Washington was not bound by the "One China" policy. He has accused China of manipulating its currency to allow its goods to outsell American made products.

Trump's meeting with the Chinese president comes as he has already formed a bond with another major leader in Asia, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whom Trump hosted at Mar-a-Lago last month.
