Sources: China's President Xi to meet top US trade negotiators on Friday - SCMP

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reports the latest comments from unnamed sources, as they cite that the Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet with the US Trade Representative Lighthizer and US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin on Friday.

The meeting is likely to be another effort to clinch a trade deal with the US heading into the March 1 tariff deadline.

One source who had been briefed on the arrangements noted: “Xi is scheduled to meet both Lighthizer and Mnuchin on Friday.”

A second source said that Xi is expected to meet the US delegation in Beijing this week, although the specific timing has not yet been confirmed.

The SCMP reported earlier that the US and China are still discussing the location and timing for the next summit after Xi-Trump met in Argentina in December 1 to agree the current 90-day truce.
