Trade talks between the USA and China have resumed and China is reportedly upbeat.

The two countries are also at loggerheads over regional security, with the U.S. offering support to the island nation of Taiwan, which China also claims as its own.

Trump's comments echoed those of U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who earlier told reporters in Beijing: "So far, so good", when asked about the progress of talks. A ceasefire, agreed to allow for discussions with a view to brokering a permanent truce, is due to expire on March 1.

White House advisor Larry Kudlow told Fox Business last week, "There is a pretty sizable distance to go in U.S".

The U.S. president hasn't been clear about whether he'll sit down to finalize a deal with Xi. Trump added he expects to meet with Xi to close the deal at some point.

"It will ultimately take".

President Trump has said he will not agree to any trade deal with China without meeting with President Xi first, though this meeting is not expected to happen before the March deadline.

Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to meet with top United States officials in Beijing this week, a report said today, as the world's two biggest economies rush to patch up their trade differences before a looming deadline.

Insisting that China "wants to make a deal very badly", Mr Trump said America has "never been in this position before" in negotiations with Beijing on trade. "Agriculture has to be part of it".

Two U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyers sailed within 12 nautical miles of a disputed artificial island in the South China Sea on Monday, prompting "strong dissatisfaction" from China. They include ending the forced transfer of American trade secrets, curbing Beijing's industrial subsidies and enforcing intellectual property rights.

AMERICAN and Chinese negotiators are set to kick off two days of official trade talks in Beijing today as the world's top two economies try to patch up their festering economic dispute.

It has also accused the government of supporting technology theft as part of its broader development strategy, while in China there is a sense that the United States is using the trade war to contain the country's rise.

The USS Preble was one of two warships conducting the operation; they were shadowed by Chinese assets, but the interactions were routine and uneventful, according to a USA official.
