December 18, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would probably meet with the Chinese in January.
“The two sides are planning to meet in January, according to Chinese officials with knowledge of the discussions who asked not to be named as the talks were private. Chinas Ministry of Commerce didnt respond to a faxed request for comment.”
PS: In the Forbidden City, the location of the photo in Q drop #2669 is believed to be Shanghai Pudong Airport.
Mnuchin "sometime in January" and your first post talks about talks on Tuesday that already took place.
I don't think its that one. Q says "awaiting VIP arrival".
Also "senior US official" seems to refer to Mnuchin more than the others.
Or somebody else?
