And in the best possible twist, Navarro will nearly surely escape once more, free to say something dangerously insane about China and Wall Street before being punished... Those missions, Washington says, are meant to enforce the right of free passage in worldwide waters under global law.

Washington has been ramping up pressure on Beijing in recent years, imposing tariffs on Chinese goods and lately accusing China of interfering in U.S. domestic politics.

The United States had said it would not start formal negotiations on trade until it saw concrete proposals from China to address its concerns.

China's Commerce Ministry says high-level trade talks between Beijing and Washington have resumed. "The work team is maintaining close contact to earnestly implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state".

"If there is a deal, if and when there is a deal, it will be on President Donald J. Trump's terms". Xi is set to meet Mr Trump.

The two countries resumed talks after the call between the two leaders, ending a three month hiatus that saw relations deteriorate as the United States accused China of interfering in U.S. domestic politics and seeking to undermine Trump.

"This is a follow up to Pence's speech at the Hudson Institute, which was widely seen as a announcing a full frontal cold war stance with China, and that follows itself from the publication of the National Defense Strategy at the beginning of this year, which obviously changes the priorities of U.S. foreign security policy", Woodward told hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou.

The US wants China to offer concessions on a wide range of grievances, from intellectual property protection to territorial claims in the South China Sea.

With much work to do to sort through the list and the Group of 20 summit only two weeks away, the official played down expectations of a major breakthrough on substantiative issues on trade during talks between Trump and Xi at the gathering of world leaders in Argentina at the end of November.

Responding to Pence's remarks, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China had always been a "model student" when it came to respecting worldwide rules and norms. "If there is a deal to be had with China it's a deal that has to be in America's interests...."

Gao said: "High-level contacts between the two sides on economics and trade have resumed following the November 1 conversation between the Chinese and American heads of state".
