UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The White House is not expected to announce a trade summit between US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday as another day of trade talks between the two sides negotiates, a senior administration official said.

China and the United States have been locked in intense negotiations to end a months-long trade war that has stirred turmoil in world markets.

After meetings in Beijing last week, US Trade Representative Robert Leitheiser and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will hold talks with a Chinese delegation in Washington this week.

Trump is expected to meet head of the Chinese delegation Liu Khi at 2030 GMT at the White House.

The Times and the New York Times reported that Trump was expected to announce during the meeting a date for a summit meeting, but a senior administration official told Reuters this was not true.

“The White House is not expected to announce a date for a meeting,” he said.
