The latest round of high-level trade negotiations between the U.S. and China have ended. But a resolution to the ongoing trade war between the two countries is still nowhere in sight.
According to several reports, delegates from the U.S. — including Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — left for the airport about 24 hours after arriving in Shanghai Tuesday.
Officials met for a working dinner Tuesday evening and further discussions the next day. But Wednesday's meeting was cut short, and neither side immediately made a public comment.
Before the U.S. delegation arrived in Shanghai for the talks, President Donald Trump posted a series of tweets accusing China of delaying negotiations. And he suggested that a new trade deal might not be in the cards until after the 2020 election.
The U.S. and China have agreed to continue negotiations in September.
