Geng Shuang, Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
On July 10, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang held a regular press conference.
Some reporters mentioned that the representatives of the two sides in the Sino-US economic and trade consultation had talked, and the United States said that the talks were very constructive. What is Chinas comment on this?
Geng Shuang said that the Ministry of Commerce has issued a press release on the telephone conversation between the two leaders of the high-level economic and trade consultation between China and the United States. The press release also pointed out that the two sides exchanged views on the implementation of the consensus of the meeting between the two heads of state in Osaka. I have no further information to offer you here.
Regarding the Sino-US economic and trade negotiations, some reporters also asked that the White House Economic Adviser recently said that it was important for China to maintain purchasing American agricultural products during the negotiations. Does that mean continuing to increase purchasing?
Geng Shuang pointed out that last week, a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce had responded to the issue of Chinas procurement of American agricultural products. Agricultural trade is an important issue to be discussed between China and the United States, requiring both sides to find solutions on the basis of equality and mutual respect.
