BEIJING (REUTERS) - China's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday (Oct 30) that lead China and US trade negotiators will speak again soon after a US administration official said an interim trade agreement between the United States and China might not be completed in time for signing in Chile next month as expected.

Working-level China-US trade talks will continue at a fast pace in the meantime, ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news briefing.
