According to a Reuters report on the 14th, the US Treasury spokesman said that US Treasury Secretary Nunchin plans to travel to China for economic and trade negotiations in the near future.
The spokesman also reiterated Trump’s statement that the Sino-US economic and trade consultations are still going on.
"As the finance minister pointed out, the negotiations are continuing. The Treasury Secretary said yesterday that we plan to visit China (with China) at some time in the near future."
According to reports, the spokesperson did not disclose the details of the possible Beijing trip of Mnuchin, but said that Trump plans to meet with President Xi during the G20 leaders' summit in Japan in late June.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson:The Chinese side has repeatedly stated that the addition of tariffs will not solve the problem, and launching a trade war will only harm others. For trade wars, China does not want to fight, and does not want to fight, but it is never afraid to fight. China will not succumb to any external pressure, and has the determination and ability to defend its legitimate rights and interests.
Yan Shuang said that in April last year, the US announced for the first time that it would impose tariffs on Chinese exports to the United States. The Chinese immediately responded with a strong response. Since then, the US has continuously issued new threats and several formal implementation of tariff-adding measures. China has resolutely opposed it. Last week, the US threatened to raise the tax rate on China's 200 billion exports to the United States from 10% to 25%, causing an uproar in the international community and a fierce reaction in the financial market. A similar situation has appeared many times before. The Chinese side’s stance is very clear and the US side is very clear. The Chinese side also called on the US to change its course and move toward the Chinese side, striving to reach a mutually beneficial and win-win agreement.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson:The international community is generally highly appreciative of this calm and calm gesture of China. Since then, the Chinese team has still gone to the United States for consultations, and the responsible actions have shown the greatest sincerity to promote settlement of differences. However, some people in the US seem to have misjudged the situation, underestimated the determination and ability of China to defend its own rights and interests, and continue to confuse and listen to the price. The Chinese side must of course explicitly reject it and resolutely oppose it.
Yu Shuang said that on May 10, the US officially announced a 25% tariff on 200 billion US dollars of Chinese products. Yesterday, the State Council Tariff Commission also announced the relevant measures of the Chinese side. This reflects China's determination and will to defend the multilateral trading system and defend its legitimate rights and interests.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson:The Chinese side has always remained calm and calm for the volatility and extreme pressure of the US side. We advise the US to take a look at the reaction of the international community, listen to the voices of people from all walks of life, calculate the gains and losses of their own interests, recognize the situation at an early date, return to the right track, and work in tandem with the Chinese side, striving to achieve mutual benefit on the basis of mutual respect. A win-win agreement.
