US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have agreed to halt new trade tariffs for 90 days to allow for talks, the US says.

Ahead of the G20, Mr Trump had told US media he expected to go ahead with plans to raise tariffs on $200bn of Chinese goods - first introduced in September - from 10% to 25%, starting in January.

白宫表示,现在此举将暂停90天,但补充说,“如果在这段时间结束后,双方无法达成协议,10%的关税将提高到25%。”

In return, the White House adds, China agreed to buy an unspecified but "very substantial" amount of agricultural, energy, industrial and other products.

白宫补充称,作为回报,中国同意购买数量不详但“非常可观”的农业、能源、工业和其它产品。

Chinese state TV said earlier: "No additional tariffs will be imposed after January 1, and negotiations between the two sides will continue."
