Chinese state media struck an optimistic note on trade talks between Chinese and U.S. officials after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to impose tariffs on up to $150 billion in Chinese goods over allegations of intellectual property theft.The English-language China Daily saw a "positive development" in the two days of talks in an agreement to establish a mechanism to keep the dialogue open, despite "big differences", as part an effort to resolve trade disputes.People familiar with the talks said on Friday the Trump administration had drawn a hard line, demanding a $200 billion cut in the Chinese trade surplus with the United States, sharply lower tariffs and advanced technology subsidies.
