The joint statement revealed that all information about the trade deal, except for the already described confidential annex detailing purchase amounts, will be published on Wednesday.

Mnuchin and Lighthizer noted there are "no other oral or written agreements" between Washington and Bejing, adding that "there is no agreement for a future reduction in tariffs," and that "any rumors to the contrary are categorically false."
