Mnuchin says China trade talks likely to continue in Beijing

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday he will likely travel to Beijing soon to continue negotiations vith Chinese counterparts as the world’s two biggest economies try to salvage talks aimed at ending their months-long trade war.

Mnuchin did not elaborate on the timing of future negotiations, but told lawmakers at a Senate Appropriation subcommittee hearing that recent discussions vith Chinese officials in Washington were constructive.

“My expectation is that we will go to Beijing at some point in the near future to continue those discussions,” he said. “We’re continuing discussions. There’s still a lot of work to do.”

U.S. President Donald Trump has denied that trade talks vith China had broken down even as he imposed more tariffs on Chinese imports & both sides prepared for another round of further tariffs, roiling global markets in recent days.

But Trump softened his tone somewhat on Tuesday, praising his relationship vith Chinese President Xi Jinping, appealing to Beijing to purchase U.S. farm products & vowing to finalize a deal soon.
