Mnuchin's delegation wrapped up two days of talks with Chinese economic officials on Friday with only an agreement to keep talking.
Some analysts, including David Lampton, professor and director of China Studies at Johns Hopkins - SAIS and the former president of the National Committee on US-China Relations, have said the close timing of the high-level bilateral talks is cause for optimism, but that Beijing will not likely concede on at least one important US demand.
North Korea and Dalian do not have direct scheduled flights, it was reported by AP. No decision has been made yet on the venue, although Singapore and the South Korean border town of Panmunjom are believed to be in consideration.
Trump announced the planned telephone call in a post on Twitter, just days after a US delegation returned from discussions in Beijing last week with no agreement on a long list of USA demands, and ahead of more negotiations next week.

The second summit between Kim and Xi came amid a flurry of top-level diplomacy over the North's nuclear weapons program. A status quo, it's worth noting, that means that the decades-long United States military presence in Korea will remain for decades more to come.
President Trump has agreed to meet with Kim at a now undisclosed location to discuss recently implemented U.S sanctions, and the discourse between the two world leaders have been troubling.
The US leader said last week the time and place will be announced soon.
