The move would be aimed at mediating any effort by the Chinese to devalue the yuan to counter American tariffs, people familiar with the situation told Bloomberg News.

Representatives for the two nations resumed overall trade discussions on Tuesday, with follow-up sessions at a higher level scheduled for later in the week, the White House said Monday.

Beijing last year reintroduced measures to stabilize its managed currency, including a calculation method called the counter-cyclical factor (CCF), aimed at keeping the yuan's daily midpoint fixed to a relatively stable value. But China has faced international pressure in the past for what many deemed unfair manipulation of its currency. Many U.S. economists argue that China's tampering in years past gave their exports a boost as a weaker yuan made Chinese exports less expensive.
