US, China envoys hold talks before Trump tariff decision

Negotiators have said any final agreement will have to be made by Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping. Trump said last week they plan to meet, but not before the March 1 deadline. “When the time is right, the hope would be that the personal chemistry that exists (between Trump and Xi) will pay dividends,” said Erin Ennis, senior vice president at the US-China Business Council.
