Top U.S., Chinese Trade Negotiators Decide on Next Step in Call

Mar 12 , 2019

China’s Vice Premier Liu He and his American counterparts decided on arrangements for the next stage of trade talks, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

Liu, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also held specific negotiations over critical issues about the wording of an agreement in the phone call this morning, Xinhua said, without giving further details.

Negotiators from both sides have been in close contact in recent weeks as markets await confirmation of a face-to-face meeting between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping to seal a deal. Trump has said he’ll need to meet Xi to conclude any agreement, though White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier that no date has been set.
