China welcomes US invitations for new round of trade talks

China has received and welcomes the invitation from the United State and is having discussions about details, according to China’s Ministry of Commerce in a regular press conference on Thursday.

It’s earlier reported that the US is seeking to restart trade talks with China, according to Dow Jones.

Senior US officials led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin sent an invitation to Chinese officials, proposing a meeting in the next few weeks to discuss trade issues, Dow Jones reported Wednesday, citing sources.

Last Friday President Donald Trump said he was “ready to go” on tariffs for another $267 billion in Chinese goods “if he wants,” which would be on top of the proposed tariffs on $200 billion in goods already being considered. The public comment period on the $200 billion tariff plan expired Thursday.
