Media around the world are closely watching the Xi-Trump meeting, as a lot will be on the table at the first face-to-face encounter between the two presidents.

The New York Times anticipates the meeting to have "A Breezy Resort, and a Thorny Agenda", as issues including the THAAD deployment, trade, and the South China Sea could prove challenging.

BBC reports that it's a "high stakes encounter upon which billions of dollars of trade depend". And discussions on trade and tariffs would be focal.

The Times of India also predicted that trade, the DPRK and the South China Sea will be among the most pressing issues discussed by the two.

Meanwhile, the Japan Times expects President Trump to press China on the DPRK, reporting that Susan Thornton, top U.S. diplomat for East Asia, called it “an urgent and global threat” on Wednesday.
