United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said that he will be speaking with a Chinese official about the ongoing trade war before President Donald Trump meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the upcoming G20 summit, reported CNBC.
“I have a conversation set up with my counterpart on the telephone in the next day and a half, and then I expect to meet with him with [Treasury Secretary Steven] Mnuchin in Osaka before the president meets with Xi,” Lighthizer said before the chief tax-writing committee of the United States House of Representatives.
Trump announced in a tweet on Tuesday that he would have an “extended meeting” with Xi at the summit, which is scheduled for June 28-29 in Osaka, Japan. Xi confirmed the plans to Chinese state media soon after.
