Washington has announced a suspension of tariffs with the Chinese side to avoid an imminent trade war between the world's two largest economies.
US Treasury Secretary Stephen Menuchin told a Senate panel on Tuesday that a tariff suspension deal with China would involve only $ 150 billion in potential fees on technology and other products.
"As far as China is concerned, the steel and aluminum tariffs will remain in force," he said. "That was not part of our discussions."
US President Donald Trump announced in March that he would impose tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum, before Canada, Mexico and the European Union temporarily granted an exemption from these fees in order to try to reach separate terms with those countries.
