US and Chinese officials say a trade war deal is ‘extremely’ likely

Washington and Beijing are likely to strike a deal that will end the trade war that has affected more than US$360 billion worth of two-way trade.US President Donald Trump and China’s Vice-Premier Liu He, who is leading a delegation from Beijing in Washington this week, both expressed optimism about an end to the stand-off, while officials involved in the talks confirmed that Liu’s delegation would remain in the US for two additional days to address all outstanding demands.

“I would say it’s probably more likely that a deal does happen,” Trump told reporters on Friday, during an Oval Office meeting with Liu and other members of both the US and Chinese trade delegations.
