NNA - US trade negotiators want to make "meaningful progress" in upcoming talks with China, AFP reported, citing Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday.

Mnuchin said on CNBC that Washington and Beijing will first hold talks at the deputy level to ensure senior officials who meet later can advance towards a resolution.

"We want to make meaningful progress," he said.

However, he again warned that President Donald Trump will only accept a good deal, and is willing to raise tariffs if necessary.--AFP
