The US and China have wrapped up contentious trade talks in Washington without agreement.

The two sides did not issue a joint statement or action plan after the meeting and cancelled scheduled press conferences.

The US was critical of China's trade surplus and demanded "more fair" trade arrangements.

Separately, US President Donald Trump indicated that tariffs on Chinese steel were still a possibility.
