Trump administration officials held a call with their Chinese counterparts on Tuesday, formally kicking off the latest round of talks to end the US-China trade war.




China's repeated commitment to buying US products and lowering auto tariffs shows that Beijing is at least superficially committed to easing the trade tensions.




But the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou and the Trump administration's actions to confront China in other areas could cast a shadow over the talks.



Just over a week after President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping reached a temporary truce, the two sides are showing signs of progress in talks to end the trade war.
"Very productive conversations going on with China! Watch for some important announcements!" Trump tweeted Tuesday.
But while encouraging signs coming China seem to show the country's dedication to the détente, worrying signs remain that the trade war isn't going to end anytime soon.
