- US and China make no progress on key trade issues in two days of deputy-level talks, sources say.
- The Chinese delegation refuses to talk about forced technology transfers, a core US grievance in the negotiations, a person with knowledge of the meetings says.
- High-level talks are expected to last for only one day, with Liu He and his team now planning to leave Washington on Thursday.
