BEIJING (MNI) - China is willing to work together with the U.S. to reach a
phase-one agreement, said Gao Feng, spokesman of the Ministry of Commerce at a
briefing on Thursday.
Vice Premier Liu He held a constructive discussion with U.S. Trade
Representative Robert Lighthizer and Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin on Nov
16, and the two sides will continue to maintain close communication, Gao said
without disclosing details.
When asked if China and the U.S. are split over the amount of U.S.
agricultural goods purchases as well as the removal of additional tariffs, Gao
would only say that "outside rumors are incorrect."
China has already expressed its solemn stand, Gao said without saying
further when asked to comment on "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act"
passed by the U.S. Senate.
