"At the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit the Japanese [city of] Osaka from 27-29 June to take part in the G20 summit", ministry's spokesman Lu Kang said in a statement.
US President Donald Trump announced plans for an "extended" meeting with the Chinese leader. Earlier, Trump said he would raise the issue of Canadians detained in China when he meets with his Chinese counterpart.
China detained two Canadian nationals, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, in December 2018 on suspicion of spying and stealing state secrets, amid a row between the two countries over Canada's detention of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou.
Washington and Beijing have been trying to overcome disagreements that emerged in the wake of Trump’s June 2018 decision to impose 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods in a bid to fix the trade deficit. Since that time, the two sides have exchanged several additional rounds of tariffs.
In May, the US escalated the trade dispute with China by including another $200 billion worth of Chinese goods in the 25 percent tariff category. China retaliated by hiking tariffs on $60 billion worth of US imports in June.
