Sources tell Reuters that top U.S. diplomat Mike Pompeo plans to meet a Chinese delegation this week in Hawaii.

They say the two sides will hash out their increasingly rocky relationship and the group plans to meet at a U.S. military base.

In recent months the world's top two economies have been at odds over the global pandemic.

In mid-May President Donald Trump even went so far as to suggest he could cut ties with Beijing.

And Trump has initiated a process of eliminating special U.S treatment for Hong Kong but stopped short of an immediate cutoff.

"We're very, very saddened by what happened to our relationship with China." China also hasn't minced its words and instead the Foreign Ministry has told the U.S not to interfere and "stop inflammatory actions." A diplomatic source told Reuters that Pompeo's meeting this week is expected to take place at Hawaii's Hickam Air Force base.

Another source said he was expected to leave Washington on Tuesday (June 16) for the meeting on Wednesday.

Hong Kong's South China Morning Post newspaper cited an unidentified source saying that Yang Jiechi, a Chinese state councilor will lead the Chinese side.

The sources say the agenda includes a long list of sore spots including the coronavirus, Hong Kong, North Korea and tit-for-tat moves against both countries' journalists.

The State Department and White House did not respond to requests for comment about the trip.

Indians have done their best to respond to China's aggressive actions: Mike Pompeo

Speaking on India-China border tensions, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said, "I have spoken with Foreign Minister S Jaishankar a number of times about this. Chinese took incredibly aggressive actions and Indians have done their best to respond to that. There aren't many neighbours that can satisfactorily say that they know where their sovereignty ends and the Chinese Communist Party will respect that. That is certainly true now for people of Bhutan. The world must come together to respond to this. This increasing revisionist effort that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engaged in is something that President Trump has taken incredibly seriously." He further said, "World has seen true colours of Chinese Communist Party and I am convinced more than ever that free people of the world will come to understand the threat. The impact General Secy Xi Jinping has on the world is not good for free and democracy loving people."
