[News] High-level talks between American and Chinese officials ended in Beijing on Friday afternoon with no immediate announcement from either side, according to an American government official, as two weeks remain until President Trump’s deadline for a resolution of the United States trade conflict with China. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Robert Lighthizer, the United States trade representative, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had made progress in resolving any of the thorny issues separating the two sides. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the talks are not public. Mr. Lighthizer and Mr. Mnuchin are expected to meet with Xi Jinping, China’s top leader, later Friday afternoon.
