A U.S. delegation had earlier been invested to Beijing.
"My read on the situation is that the two parties are ... quite a long way apart at this point," Mark Jolley, global strategist at CCB International Securities, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Monday.

"Huawei has 12 months worth of chips already lined up ... in reserve, in stock that it can use. And so, that gives it plenty of time to reengineer its supply chain and so, actually what this is doing it potentially ... it's putting American suppliers really under pressure rather than anyone else," Paul Gambles, co-founder and managing partner of MBMG Group, told CNBC's "Street Signs" on Monday.
