Gao Feng, the spokesperson of the ministry, said the two sides are discussing issues surrounding the next round of talks, which is scheduled to be held in September in the US.

Both sides should work together, create conditions for the next round of talks, and make progress in the consultations, Gao said at a weekly briefing.

Gao said the ministry hopes Washington will cancel planned additional tariffs to avoid an escalation in the trade war. China is willing to resolve the issues with a calm attitude, and hopes the US will meet China halfway, Gao added.
