U.S. Commerce chief: No quid pro quo from China as U.S. postpones some tariffs

WASHINGTON, Aug 14 (Reuters) – There were no concessions from China for the U.S. decision to postpone tariffs on some Chinese imports until mid-December, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Wednesday, adding that it was too early to assess where U.S.-China trade talks stand.

Ross, speaking in an interview on CNBC, added that while further telephone conversations are planned, a date has not been set for another round of in-person discussions. (Reporting by Susan Heavey)
