China has offered Macau as a possible site for the ceremony to mark the signing by its president, Xi Jinping, and the US president, Donald Trump, of an interim trade agreement between their countries, US television channel Fox News reported on Thursday.

The information, reported by Fox Business reporter Edward Lawrence, comes after Chile announced that it had given up its plan to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, amid an ongoing wave of protests in the country.

Xi and Trump had planned to meet on the sidelines of the APEC forum, on 16 and 17 November, to sign an interim agreement aimed at halting the escalation in the trade war between the two countries.

Macau has been a part of China, as a self-governing territory, since 1999, when it was handed back by Portugal.
