US-China Business Council President Craig Allen, who met with Mr. Liu in Washington on Wednesday, said China’s top negotiator “seemed to take a very pragmatic view on what could be expected from the US in terms of producing a balanced agreement and noted this would be a process rather than a single deal that would resolve all issues.”
