U.S., Chinese Officials to Discuss Trade This Week -Mnuchin

WASHINGTON, July 15 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday told reporters he expects to have another telephone call with Chinese officials this week as part of resumed discussions about a trade agreement.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping last month agreed to another truce in the year-long trade spat between the world's two largest economies.

Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer followed up with a phone call with Chinese trade officials last week, but no details have been released about an expected in-person meeting. “To the extent that we make significant progress, I think there’s a good chance we’ll go there later,” Mnuchin told reporters at the White House.
