China president's plane stops in Alaska after Trump visit

United States President Donald Trump's grandchildren serenaded Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan with a traditional Chinese folk song and a recital of Chinese poetry during the presidents' first meeting.

The Chinese government officially notified the governor's office last month that President Xi Jinping would be flying into Anchorage, and requested a meeting between President Xi and Governor Walker.

After meeting with China's President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, President Trump said that China "will be stepping up" on North Korea.

Xi was accompanied by his wife, Peng Liyuan, and greeted at Ted Stevens International Airport by the governor and First Lady Donna Walker, along with Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott and his wife Toni. Hladick said he'd be happy to get a 45-minute meeting with the Chinese trade minister.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Friday that the two sides would report back in 100 days on ways to make US-China trade more balanced.

The company previously shipped coal to Chile, South Korea and Japan, but has no foreign export contracts this year.




Instead, he told reporters that he has been to Alaska several times before this trip, but he never had the chance to see the state's natural beauty up close.

The pullout offers a stunning view of the snow-capped Chugach Mountains and Turnagain Arm in Alaska's Cook Inlet.

Xi is the second major world leader to spend time in Alaska's largest city in the last few years.

President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II met in 1984 during refueling stops at the airport in Fairbanks. Alaska's leading export is various species of fish.
