Ties between China and Germany are about to enter a new phase, China's president said after meeting Germany's chancellor, ahead of a G20 summit which is expected to highlight their differences with the United States administration on a host of issues.

German cities such as Duisburg and Hamburg have become important hubs for freight train traffic between China and Europe, Xi wrote in an article published by German newspaper Die Welt. The leaders also watched a photo exhibition on football cooperation between the two countries' schools.

Their cooperation is expanding in areas such as aerospace, ocean, arctic areas and cyberspace, he noted.

Both China and Germany are pushing for the G20 to endorse free trade and oppose economic isolationism amid growing concerns over U.S. President Donald Trump's protectionist stance. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.
