In a series of tweets on Wednesday, President Donald Trump said that there were "very strong signals" that China was ready to reach a trade deal with the United States.

"China will start from agricultural products, autos and energy to immediately implement specific items that China and the US have agreed upon", Ministry of Commerce Spokesman Gao Feng told reporters in Beijing.

"Teams from both sides are in contact and cooperating well, we are fully confident that we can reach an agreement in the coming 90 days", Gao said, without providing more specific details about what actions China will take.

In return, Washington said China would purchase "very substantial" amounts of U.S. agricultural, energy, industrial and other products.

He also said that Xi had promised him that the Chinese government would crack down harder on fentanyl shipments from China to the US, and tweeted a quote from a Bloomberg story which said that China was ready to restart imports of USA products, including soybeans and natural gas.

China is fully confident that it can reach a trade deal with the US within the 90 days set for talks, Gao said.

Trump added China would roll back tariffs of 40% on cars.

Gao's briefing came hours after the trade detente risked being rattled by the arrest in Canada of a top executive from Chinese telecom giant Huawei at the request of the United States.
