- Story Text: China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday (October 11) that it hopes "positive progress" can be made on basis of respect, equality and mutual benefit as the first round of talks ended on Thursday (October 10).
The 13th high-level trade talk kicked off in Washington DC on Thursday and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He was leading the delegation meeting with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
As the top U.S. and Chinese delegations wrapped up the first day of trade talks, business groups expressed optimism the two sides might be able to ease the conflict and delay a U.S. tariff hike scheduled for next week.
Trump, said that the talks had so far gone very well. But he has previously insisted he would not be satisfied with a partial deal to resolve his two-year effort to change China's trade, intellectual property and industrial policy practices, which he argues cost millions of U.S. jobs.
