Chinese Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen said at a news conference today that whether trade talk could restart depends on the “will” of the US. But he emphasized that trade meeting will not take place against the backdrop of “threats and pressure” from the US.
He said, “now that the United States has adopted such a huge trade restriction measure … how can the negotiations proceed? It’s not an equal negotiation.”
Wang also added that “if this continues, it will destroy in an instant the gains of the last four decades of China-U.S. relations.”
