White House spokeswoman, Lindsay Walters said in a statement that the delegations exchanged views on how to achieve fairness, balance and reciprocity in the economic relationship. However, she did not mention further talks.
A Chinese Commerce Ministry statement said the talks were constructive and frank but gave no details. It said the two sides would maintain contact.
