US trade talks with China could stretch on for “months,” said President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow, reported the Financial Times.
“This is not time-dependent. This is policy- and enforcement-dependent,” Kudlow, the head of the National Economic Council said in Washington.
“If it takes a few more weeks, or if it takes months, so be it. We have to get a great deal, as the president says, that works for the United States. That’s our principal interest,” he said, according to Bloomberg.
Kudlow’s comments were made as US negotiators, led by Robert Lighthizer, the US trade representative, and Steven Mnuchin, the US Treasury secretary, began a new session of talks with Liu He, China’s Vice-Premier, in Beijing.
