The move angered Beijing at a time when the U.S. and China ton are locked in a trade war and are negotiating a deal ahead of a March 1 deadline when USA tariffs on $ 200 billion worth of Chinese imports are expected to increase to 25 per cent from 10 per cent.

China is pitted against smaller neighbors in multiple disputes in the South China Sea over islands, coral reefs and lagoons in waters crucial for global commerce and rich in fish and potential oil and gas reserves.

A pair of Navy guided-missile destroyers have sailed within a dozen nautical miles of disputed islands China is believed to have militarized - a move that has angered some in Beijing.

The US delegates and their counterparts began preliminary talks in the Chinese capital on Monday, before higher-level discussions led on the US side by Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday and Friday.

We are really happy to have him [Solskjaer] here and we hope we can continue [together], but the final decision isn't with us". We are PSG , we are used to playing offensively and creating chances", he said.

The same day the latest talks began, two US warships sailed near islands claimed by China in the disputed South China Sea, a USA official told Reuters. The official said Monday's operation focused on Mischief Reef, a location claimed by China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Freedom-of-navigation operations occur frequently, but they have not stopped China from bolstering its position militarily in the South China Sea.

"We conduct routine and regular freedom of navigation operations as we have done in the past and will continue to in the future", he said.

The Chinese foreign ministry on Monday said the People's Liberation Army Navy sent vessels to track the U.S. warships sailing near the Spratlys and warned them to leave the area.

Over the last five years China has rapidly built artificial islands housing significant military infrastructure on what had been low-lying reefs.

China says the construction is necessary for defence, and it was the United States that was responsible for tensions by sending warships and military planes close to islands Beijing claims.
