U.S. says China reneging on trade commitments, talks continue

WASHINGTON, May 6 (Reuters) - China backtracked on commitments in trade talks and U.S. negotiators are recommending to President Donald Trump that Washington impose additional tariffs on Chinese goods if there is not an agreement by Friday, top U.S. trade officials said.

A delegation from China will be in Washington on Thursday and Friday to continue talks and Lighthizer said he expected Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will attend. Trump wants to see a deal with substantial structural changes but that is not where the two sides are at the moment, Lighthizer said as he and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin briefed reporters.
