WH official denies US is mulling interim China deal

An unnamed senior White House official denied on Thursday reports that the administration is considering striking an interim deal with China in a bid to delay tariffs.

The official was quoted as saying that it is "absolutely not true" that the White House is mulling an interim deal, shooting down hopes of a recent resolution to the trade spat.

Beijing is, however, thinking about changing the course of the talks. Earlier reports have indicated that the country is mulling separating the issue of the trade from national security in an effort to settle the more pressing issues more quickly.
