Chinese and US trade negotiators tussle over enforcement issues during ‘very productive talks’

US and Chinese negotiators trying to hammer out an agreement that would avert an escalation in their bilateral trade war remain at odds over US government demands on how to enforce commitments made by Beijing, according to sources familiar with the ongoing talks in Washington.

The negotiating teams have been silent since US President Donald Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He met in the White House’s Oval Office on Friday to announce that the talks would carry on for two additional days, with Liu citing “positive progress” and Trump saying the talks have been “very productive”.
