White paper: US backtracks on its pledgesington’s dema

The United States should take responsibility for the setback in economic and tra

de consultations with China, a government white paper said, warning that “red lines” cannot be crossed.

The US government has backtracked on its commitments three times in the trade negotiations with

China and should bear sole responsibility for the stalled progress, the paper said on Sunday.

The white paper, “China’s Position on the China-US Economic and Trade Consultations”, was

released by the State Council Information Office. It came amid ongoing tension between the world’s two largest economies.

Speaking at a news conference on Sunday, Vice-Minister of Commerce Wang Shouw

en said China is willing to work together with the US to find solutions concerning differences on the eco

nomic and trade fronts, and to reach a mutually beneficial and win-win agreement.
