Chinese Premier Li Keqiang stressed the need for healthy Sino-U.S. relations and reiterated his country's stability across various sectors, including the economy, financial markets and foreign policy, at a Wednesday news conference.
Speaking at the conclusion of the nation's annual 'Two Sessions' meetings, Li said that Beijing and Washington should strengthen dialogue to resolve differences and achieve common ground on trade relations. "China doesn't want to see a trade war with the U.S.," Li said.
His remarks come ahead of scheduled talks between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping next month. The summit would be Trump's latest attempt to ameliorate bilateral ties after he criticized the Asian giant on a range of issues.
