Trump says US-China talks scheduled for today

Trade talks "at a different level" between the United States and China are scheduled for later in the day, said President Donald Trump on Thursday.

Speaking on Fox News Radio, he stressed that Beijing "sort of has to" make trade a deal with the US, which is why it wants to negotiate an agreement.

Earlier in the day, China's Ministry of Commerce called on Washington to refrain from introducing additional tariffs on Chinese products from next week, warning it has "ample means for retaliation."
