Mnuchin to plan trip to China 'soon' - Treasury

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will plan a visit to China "soon," to continue trade talks with Chinese representatives, a spokesperson for the Treasury Department revealed on Tuesday.

"As the secretary has indicated, the negotiations will continue. We do anticipate, as the secretary indicated yesterday, that we will plan for a meeting in China at some point soon," the spokesperson told reporters at a briefing, without specifying when the trip could happen.

United States President Donald Trump said earlier in the day that talks with China "have not collapsed" and that a deal with China "could absolutely happen." He will meet his Chinese counterpart on June 20 in Japan, at the G20 summit.
