The United States is not seeking a trade war with China and top USA officials are looking to make a deal with Beijing, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday as talks between the two nations were set to resume.

Kudlow told Politico that the United States was not looking for a trade war with China and that it was not clear what action the United States would take toward ZTE.

Kudlow, speaking in a live interview with Politico news outlet, said he backed U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's efforts to reach an agreement with Beijing and that both countries must take action.

U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Branstad, who was at the Beijing talks, said earlier on Tuesday the United States wants a timetable on how China will open up its markets to U.S. exports as the two countries are still not close to resolving trade frictions.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters confirmed USA officials were in talks with China about the company, saying that Mr Trump expects Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross "to exercise his independent judgement, consistent with applicable laws and regulations, to resolve the regulatory action involving ZTE based on its facts".

The first round of trade talks between China and the US took place in Beijing on May 3 to 4.

"You (Trump) should care more about our national security than Chinese jobs".

In March, Washington introduced a 25 per cent tariff on imported steel and a 10-per cent tariff on imported aluminium.

"We're still very far apart", he said.

As part of this, they also entered into an agreement with the U.S. government.

One area the world's two most powerful economies likely won't be able to address during discussions this week is China's practice of what is known as technology mercantilism, in which it distorts policies and systems in order to expand domestic technology production.
