US President Donald Trump has landed in Beijing, kicking off a three-day visit to China.
Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are set to visit the Forbidden City with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan.
Trump is expected to dine with Xi inside the Jianfu Palace. The building dates back to the 18th century and was fully restored in 2005, making it one of the most well-preserved parts of the palace complex.

Meanwhile a senior White House official says Trump is expected to ask China to cut its financial links with North Korea and to abide by UN sanctions when he meets with Xi.
The president was undecided on whether to declare North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism by the end of his trip, the official said, speaking to reporters on-board Air Force One.
