At a press conference in Beijing On May 6, Geng Shuang, spokesman for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), stated, “Regarding the US threat to levy additional tariffs on some Chinese products, there have been many similar precedents. China's position and attitude have always been clear and the US knows that very well.”

Mr. Geng went on to say, “The ten rounds of economic and trade consultations held so far between the two sides have achieved positive progress. The pressing task at the moment, which is also our hope, is that the US will work with China to meet each other half way and strive for a mutually-beneficial agreement on the basis of mutual respect. It serves the interests of both China and the US and is the common aspiration of the international community.”

Concluding, the MFA spokesman stated, “As to the next round of consultations, I have noted the attention both at home and abroad and the many comments from the international community. We are also trying to get more information. What I can say is that the Chinese delegation is preparing to travel to the US for consultations.”
