China cancels trade talks with US

China has cancelled upcoming trade talks with the United States and will not send vice-premier Liu He to Washington next week. 

Quoting sources. the Wall Street Journal reports a mid-level delegation was due to travel to Washington ahead of Liu’s visit, but the trip has now been abandoned.
