Trump to lead US-China trade talks

(VOVWORLD) - US President Donald Trump will lead trade negotiations with China, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Monday. 

Mnuchin said the US needs to see something concrete from China in the next 90 days to build a real agreement on trade, two days after Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping called a truce in the escalating confrontation between the two economic powerhouses. He said there was a significant commitment from both leaders on what needs to be done and instructions to both sides to negotiate and turn this into a real agreement with specific action items, deliverables and time frames.

Trump appointed US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to lead the next trade negotiation talk with China. He said US-China relations have achieved great progress.
