"This trade fight couldn't have come at a worse time for China.

It is imperative for the two sides to create enabling environment for the talks at this time", he said.

For their part, Chinese officials are unhappy with US curbs on exports of "dual use" technology with possible military applications.

As the Trump administration continues trade negotiations with China, the US delegation is taking additional steps to make sure the Communist country follows through on its pledges.

The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.4 percent in the third quarter, and unemployment is at a five-decade low.
