China and the United States went back to the negotiating table this Tuesday, this time in Shanghai, to try to resolve their differences and end the trade war they have been waging for more than a year.

The resumption of these talks is the result of the truce agreed between Presidents Xi Jinping and Donald Trump during their meeting at the G20 summit held in June in Japan.

Talks between Beijing and Washington have been frozen since May when the White House raised tariffs on Chinese products from 10 percent to 25 percent, forcing China to respond with similar measures.

This twelfth round of talks began in the midst of apparent skepticism given the recent misunderstandings between the two powers and so far not much detail has been leaked from the meeting.

As usual, Deputy Prime Minister Liu He chairs China's negotiating team, this time accompanied by Trade Minister Zhong Shan, who did not participate on previous occasions.

Meanwhile, on the U.S. side also repeat, Robert Lighthizer, commercial representative and Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin.
