[BENGALURU] The White House has denied a report from the South China Morning Post that said that Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is planning to leave Washington on Thursday after just one day of minister-level meetings, a CNBC reporter said on Twitter.
"We are not aware of a change in the Vice Premier's travel plans at this time," a White House spokesman told CNBC.
Mr Liu is still scheduled to leave on Friday evening, CNBC reported, citing an official.
When asked if a breakthrough can be expected in the China talks this week, the official told CNBC that US President Donald Trump has not yet made up his mind.
