SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Chinese Vice Premier Liu He conducted a phone call with U.S. trade officials, China’s Ministry of Commerce said in a statement Wednesday.

Liu spoke with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday evening, the statement said.

The officials exchanged views on implementing an agreement reached between Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump at their meeting in Osaka in late June, the statement said.
