CHICAGO (Reuters) – Chinese importers bought about 10 cargoes of U.S. soybeans on Monday, or about 600,000 tonnes, for shipment from Pacific Northwest export terminals from October to December, two traders with direct knowledge of the deals said.

The deals, similar in size to a wave of purchases earlier this month, came after Chinese agriculture officials abruptly cancelled a visit to U.S. farm states last week as deputy trade negotiators wrapped up talks in Washington, a move that cast uncertainty over a Sino-U.S. trade deal.
