UK's Truss to meet Lighthizer in US next week - report

United Kingdom Secretary of State for International Trade Liz Truss (pictured) will travel to Washington DC to meet US trade officials, planning to discuss progress on reaching a free trade agreement between the two countries, Financial Times reported on Saturday.

Truss is reportedly set to meet United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Monday and Tuesday to negotiate on future trade relations between London and Washington.

Earlier this week, the secretary asserted no deadline has been set for reaching the trade deal, though Truss previously said she would prefer "accelerated" negotiations with Washington.
