Mnuchin: Productive trade talks with UK, Australia

United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin stated on Friday he had discussed reopening of economy, further trade collaboration, and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic with United Kingdom Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak and Treasurer of Australia Josh Frydenberg.

"We discussed safely reopening our economies, the progress of our ongoing trade talks, and the strong US-UK economic relationship," Mnuchin wrote on Twitter. He added that his conversation with Frydenberg also included security measures against "threats while fostering economic growth."

The secretary previously said that the US cannot close again as it would cause "more damage" to areas other than just the economy.
