BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday China and the United States have maintained close contact on bilateral trade issues.
Trump said on Thursday that the two countries would soon announce a new location at which he and Xi would sign a “Phase One” trade deal.
But speaking at a daily news briefing in Beijing, ministry spokesman Geng Shuang dismissed as speculation talk the two leaders will meet in Macau.
(Corrects lead and headline to say that the two sides are maintaining close contact on trade issues, not a meeting of the two leaders; the original story also included alerts.)
