US-China trade talks 'friendly and frank': US

A- A A+

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Sunday he had been having frank, useful talks in China about exports, as Washington presses home its message to Beijing about structural economic changes amid a festering trade dispute.

Ross arrived in Beijing on Saturday for trade talks after the Trump administration renewed tariff threats against China, and with key U.S. allies in a foul mood toward Washington after they were hit with duties on steel and aluminum, reports Reuters.

Addressing Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, Ross said it had been a great pleasure to spend Saturday with him, when they had dinner together.

“Our meetings so far have been friendly and frank, and covered some useful topics about specific export items,” Ross said, in brief comments before reporters.
