Easing US-China worries lift Nikkei Asia300 Index

Malaysia's country gauge ekes out small gains as markets reopen post-election

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Asian stocks outside of Japan rose on Monday, as investors bet tensions between China and the U.S. were set to ease after President Donald Trump said trade talks between the nations were going well.

The Nikkei Asia300 Index added 0.7% to 1,433.01 on Monday after rising 2.1% last week. Regional sentiment improved after Trump on Twitter said the world's largest economies were working well together on trade relations. Asian markets also tracked Wall Street's gains on Friday amid robust U.S. corporate earnings.
