US President Donald Trump is considering a 60-day extension of the March 1 deadline for higher tariffs on Chinese imports, Bloomberg said on Thursday, citing unnamed sources.

Trump was considering the extension so as to give two-way talks more time, Bloomberg added.

A trade delegation led by US Trade Representative Robert Lighthiser and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin began high-level talks with Chinese counterparts, led by vice Premier Liu He, on Thursday.
