US, China to hold trade talks in coming days, Chinese commerce ministry says

(VOVWORLD) - The US and China have agreed to go back to the negotiating table in the coming days to review the progress of their “phase one” trade deal, according to the Chinese commerce ministry.

Both sides will hold the “discussion over the phone,” the ministry said. It comes after talks scheduled for last Saturday were postponed due to a scheduling conflict, according to Reuters. 

The “phase one” trade deal, signed in January, paused a damaging trade war between the world’s two largest economies that involved retaliatory tariffs being slapped on billions of dollars worth of goods.
