The United States Trade Representative released a statement after three days of talks between the U.S. and China in Beijing. The group says that negotiators focused on China's pledge to purchase a "substantial amount" of agricultural, energy, manufactured goods, and other products and services from the U.S.

The statement did not say how much agriculture product China would be buying, or if the two sides had reached any kind of agreement. The statement went on to say the delegation would report back to receive guidance on the next steps.  

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce also talked about the meetings.  A spokesman said the talks were "extensive, in-depth and detailed exchanges" over trade and structural issues. 

The three-day talks that started Monday were the first face-to-face meetings since President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed on December 1st to stop imposing new tariffs for 90 days, pending negotiations.
