Beijing (People's Daily)-China welcomes US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s visit for trade talks, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang on Wednesday.
On Sunday, China’s commerce and foreign affairs ministries said they had received the information that Mnuchin proposed to make a trip to Beijing for economic and trade talks and they welcomed it.
"I’d like to repeat our stance: We welcome his visit," Lu told reporters at a regular briefing.
US President Donald Trump said a day earlier that Mnuchin and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will travel to China "in a few days."
