Gen. Jack Keane said Monday on "The Story" that he's in favor of the truce agreed upon between the U.S. and China, but "it remains to be seen" what results it will yield.

It was announced on Saturday after President Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping met over dinner that the two countries agreed upon the 90-day truce in order to work out trade differences.

The leaders attended the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As part of the agreement, Trump -- who called the deal "incredible" -- said that he'll delay the United States' plan to impose tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods.

"I think this is more about delaying the inevitable as much as [the Chinese] possibly can," Keane, a Fox News senior strategic analyst, said.

He added that Xi has sought to control the Indo-Pacific region, where the U.S. previously had significance.

Keane also said that the Chinese leader intends to overtake the United States as a global leader in the world.

"These are their goals, and they never publicly stated their goals before," he said. "It's a step in the right direction. Take that step and see if they can make more progress, I think, is likely where [Trump] is coming from."

Trump tweeted on Monday that his meeting with President Xi was "extraordinary," and that "very good things" will happen in terms of the United States' relationship with China.
