BEIJING (Reuters) - The U.S. trade delegation in Beijing is wrapping up meetings with Chinese officials and will return to the United States later on Wednesday, a U.S. official said.

Ted McKinney, U.S. Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs, made the comments to reporters at the delegation’s hotel.

“I think they went just fine,” McKinney said of the talks. He declined to answer further questions.
