    There has been a lot of attention at this year's G20 summit on the growing trade war between the US and China.

    US President Donald Trump and China President Xi Jinping will meet on Saturday to discuss trade relations.

    Both sides stand to suffer if the Trump administration raises taxes as it has promised, but Chinese leadership, although publicly hopeful, seem sceptical that a deal can be reached.

    Al Jazeera's Adrian Brown explains what's at stake and what to expect, from Beijing.
