U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Saturday talks on trade war with China are unlikely to resolve anything before the G-20 summit later this month.

"We strive to realize a free, fair, non-discriminatory, transparent, predictable and stable trade and investment environment, to keep our markets open", they said.
Mnuchin told reporters that he expected that any major progress in resolving the impasse would likely come at a meeting of Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping during the G-20 summit in late June in Osaka, Japan.
Ahead of the meeting, campaign group Oxfam said the Fukuoka meeting was a "unique chance to put a stop to corporate tax dodging and damaging tax competition". "If we can't get the right agreement, we will proceed with tariffs", Mr Mnuchin said.
