China Pres. Meets European Leaders     03/26 06:23

   PARIS (AP) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping is meeting with the leaders of 
France, Germany and the European Commission, as European countries seek to 
boost relations with China while also putting pressure over its trade practices.

   German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President 
Jean-Claude Juncker came to Paris to join Xi and French President Emmanuel 
Macron for Tuesday's meeting. The leaders are notably preparing for a crucial 
EU-China summit.

   Tuesday's meeting is a key moment in Xi's European tour, which has involved 
huge business contracts, including one of the biggest deals ever for European 
plane maker Airbus.

   Xi also received the full honors of a formal reception in the French 
presidential palace Monday night.

   The EU is China's biggest trade partner and wants to solidify that 
relationship.
