'Frank' trade discussions in Beijing: US commerce secretary

'Frank' trade discussions in Beijing: US commerce secretaryUS Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Sunday trade talks have been “friendly and frank” as the US and China continued with a second day of negotiations in Beijing aimed at deescalating tensions between the two sides. The discussions are intended to ease tensions after Washington said it would follow through with tariffs on Chinese imports despite a truce reached between the two sides in the US last month. “Our meetings so far have been friendly and frank, and covered some useful topics about specific export items,” Ross told the Chinese trade team led by Vice Premier Liu He, President Xi Jinping’s right hand-man on economic issues.
