For the first time in its 25-year history, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit ended Sunday with its leaders failing to agree on a formal joint statement.
All 21 APEC leaders at the annual meeting in Papua New Guinea were in agreement except China, a source within the meeting told CNN.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed late Sunday that disagreements on trade stood in the way of a final statement.
“History has shown that confrontation, whether in the form of a cold war, a hot war or a trade war, will produce no winners,” Xi said to applause.
Pence said Washington wouldn’t ease the trade war with Beijing until it “changes its ways” in his Saturday address.
