A number of officials from China said earlier on Thursday November 7th that the US and China have agreed to make tariff rollback, Reuters reported.

However, officials at the White House and outside advisers fiercely opposed the decision, Reuters cited sources familiar with the talks as saying.

The sources said that tariff reductions, agreed by the US and China as part of the first phase of a trade deal, were not included on the deal reached earlier between US President Donald Trump and China’s Vice Premier Liu He.
