A new round of talks between the United States and China to resolve their trade war will take place in Washington on February 19, with follow-up sessions at a higher level later in the week, the White House said on February 18.

The talks follow a round of negotiations that ended last week in Beijing without a deal but which officials said had generated progress on contentious issues between the two trading partners.

The talks are aimed at "achieving needed structural changes in China that affect trade between the United States and China. The two sides will also discuss China’s pledge to purchase a substantial amount of goods and services from the United States," the White House said in a statement.
