China Bats Away Rumors, Says Trade Talks With US Continue
Thursday, 21 November 2019 23:32 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

China is working to resolve conflicts with Washington over trade, a Commerce Ministry official said Thursday, dismissing speculation the talks might be in trouble as inaccurate "rumors."

Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said he had no new information to release. But he said China was committed to working toward an agreement.

œChina is willing to address core concerns together with the U.S. on a basis of equality and mutual respect, and to work to conclude our discussions on the first phase of a trade deal, Gao told reporters at a weekly briefing.

œThis will benefit China, the U.S. and the world, Gao said.

Financial markets have swung between elation and gloom in recent days as conflicting reports over the talks swirled. Some have cited officials saying they believe a deal is likely by the year's end, while others have expressed skepticism.

Gao described such reports as œoutside rumors that are not at all reliable.

President Donald Trump began imposing punitive tariffs on Chinese exports nearly 18 months ago, citing trade and technology policies that he says violate Beijing's market-opening commitments and are unfair.
