The U.S. and China have agreed to roll back tariffs on each other's goods as part of a partial deal to end the months-long trade war between them.
A spokesperson for China's commerce ministry announced the agreement during a news briefing Thursday.
He said both China and the U.S. would simultaneously cancel the same proportion of tariffs in stages as part of a "phase one" trade deal. It's unclear exactly which tariffs would be dropped and when.
The U.S. didn't immediately confirm the agreement. But earlier this week, a senior Trump administration official told The Wall Street Journal: "If there's a deal, [removing] tariffs will be part of it."
Back in October, President Donald Trump said the two countries had agreed on the outlines of a partial trade deal. President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to sign that deal soon.
