China hopes for ‘good results’ in trade talks

Two-day negotiations begin today
China said on Tuesday that it remains hopeful of “good results” from trade talks in Washington this week after U.S. President Trump threw cold water on the prospects for a breakthrough. U.S. and Chinese officials are set to hold two days of talks in Washington starting Wednesday, their first formal discussions since June. In an interview with Reuters, Mr. Trump said that he did not anticipate much from the talks to be led by China’s Vice-Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen, and David Malpass, a senior U.S. Treasury official.
“Frankly speaking, as far as the Chinese side is concerned, since negotiations, consultations, are happening, we still hope to achieve good results,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular press briefing.
