     BEIJING (MNI) - China's Ministry of Commerce said Thursday the leaders of
Chinese and U.S. negotiation teams have held talks after last week's meeting in
Washington to discuss remaining unsolved issues in the two countries' trade
dispute, the Ministry said, without elaborating further.
     Here are highlights from the weekly press briefing:
     --"Negotiation teams of both sides will maintain close communication
through various effective methods to continue to advance serious negotiations
with their best efforts," Gao Feng, spokesman of the ministry told reporters.
"And to work towards implementing the important consensus reached by the
presidents of the two nations."
     --China hopes the 337 investigation initiated by the U.S. International
Trade Commission last week into claims from a South Korea-headquartered
photovoltaics company and a U.S. subsidiary that exports to the U.S. have
infringed on its intellectual property will be objective and fair, Gao said.
"Chinese companies involved are actively tackling related issues," Gao said.
