Trump asked Xi to look at cases of UCLA basketball players

Trump asked Xi to look at cases of UCLA basketball players

The players could reportedly stay in the country for a "week or two".

The ASEAN leaders will express "grave concern" over North Korea's development of "weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear and chemical weapons, and ballistic missile technologies", and strongly condemn terrorism, according to a draft of a summit communique seen by The Associated Press.

The statement will be issued after a meeting later between China and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Manila, a diplomatic source said.

"While the situation is calmer now, we can not take the current progress for granted", the leaders said in the draft statement.

Xinhua news agency reported that the two sides agreed to appropriately manage maritime issues, steadily advance all forms of maritime cooperation and strive to uphold peace and stability in the South China Sea.

The territorial tensions in the South China Sea center on Beijing claiming virtually all of the sea to be its territorial waters, claims that have been vigorously disputed by Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei.

U.S. officials said the State Department normally takes over cases of American citizens when they are arrested overseas and that the U.S. Embassy in Beijing knows the case is ongoing. "If you look at the framework agreement signed earlier this year, there's nothing there".

Aaron Jones (MCL) expected to miss 3-6 weeks for Packers
Jones was carted off the field in the first quarter on Monday after seeing the first four touches out of the Packers' backfield. Ty Montgomery rushed for 54 yards and a touchdown on six carries after Jones left, but he too left the game and did not return.

The Chinese leader, however, would not back down on Beijing's territorial claim, Mr Duterte said.

The communist neighbours have long sparred over the sea, through which $5 trillion in shipping trade passes annually and which is believed to sit atop vast gas reserves.

The US is not a claimant to the potentially oil-rich and busy waters, but it has declared that it has a national interest in ensuring freedom of navigation and overflight and the peaceful resolution of the dispute.

Contempt for China runs deep in Vietnam, a country that was colonized by China for almost 1,000 years. "We are committed to working with ASEAN to be good neighbors, good friends and good partners that always stand together, rain or shine", Li told the ASEAN leaders.

U.S. president Donald Trump took his verbal jousting with Kim Jong-un to a new level on Sunday, taunting the North Korean leader over his height and weight before musing over the idea of them eventually becoming friends.

An anonymous US official told The Washington Post that after Trump brought the situation up, Xi said he would ensure fair treatment and expeditious legal processing for the players. "And you were fantastic also".

During their meeting, Duterte thanked Turnbull for coming to the Philippines and having the bilateral talk with him.
