President Donald Trump said Monday that US and Chinese trade negotiators would “very shortly” resume talks in what he described as a breakthrough in the two economic superpowers’ trade war.

“China called last night… said let’s get back to the table, so we’ll be getting back to the table,” Trump told reporters at the G7 summit in Biarritz.

Trump said that Chinese officials had made two “very, very good calls” and that “they want to make a deal”.
