Mnuchin told reporters that Vice Premier Liu He was expected to lead a delegation to Washington "later in the month."

The Treasury secretary says that the partial government shutdown "would have no impact" on the efforts to reach a trade deal by March 1.

The Trump administration has suspended the imposition of planned tariff increases on $200 billion of Chinese goods until March 1 to give negotiators time to reach a wide-ranging agreement.

Mnuchin did not provide a specific date for the talks, but The Wall Street Journal quoted unnamed sources as saying the tentative date for the meeting was Jan. 30-31.
