Trump said that "formal signing being arranged."

US President said Friday he'd had a "very good talk" with his Chinese counterpart on a partial resolution of the countries' huge trade war.

Trump tweeted that China "already started large scale" increases in purchases of US farm goods, in line with the deal. However, he did not give a date for when the so-called "phase one" deal will actually be signed.

"Formal signing being arranged," he said.
