US and Chinese heads may sign trade agreement in Japan - media

According to sources, this is one of the opportunities that the parties are considering
US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping can hold a meeting to sign the trade agreement between the countries during the visit of the American leader to Japan, which is expected to take place in May. This was reported by Bloomberg.
According to his sources, this is one of the opportunities that the parties are considering. The TV channel CNBC also reports that the summit of the leaders of the United States and China can take place in Japan. According to his sources, Beijing is in favor of holding this meeting of Trump and Xi Jinping in Asia. Representatives of the United States previously proposed to organize a summit at the Trump Mar-a-Lago country estate in the US state of Florida.
Earlier it was reported that the United States and China may sign the final trade agreement in late May or early June. The parties intend to hold several more rounds of consultations before this.
Recall that earlier on March 28, US Trade Representative Robert Lightheiser and Finance Minister Stephen Mnuchin arrived in Beijing to participate in the next round of trade negotiations with Chinese officials. Their goal is an agreement that ends the trade war between China and the United States. Negotiations will continue until progress is made on key issues. "They can go until May, June, no one knows. Perhaps this (the deal. - Ed.) Happens in April, we do not know," - said a representative of the US administration.
Trump said last week that Washington could save duties on Chinese goods for a "significant period" of time to ensure that Beijing’s potential trade agreement is respected.
At the same time, the US Commerce Secretary saw good prospects for a trade agreement with China. March 18, Trump said that the preparation of a trade transaction between the United States and China requires more time than originally planned.
