MANILA, June 11 (Reuters) - Prices for industrial metals were mostly higher in Asian trading on Tuesday, with copper extending gains on expectations China's appetite for the commodity could grow.
China's Yangshan copper premium <SMM-CUYP-CN> rose to $59 a tonne on Monday, a level not seen since mid-March, suggesting an increase in demand.
Broad focus in financial markets was on the festering trade dispute between Washington and Beijing.
While U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he was ready to impose more punitive tariffs on Chinese imports, Beijing said it is open for more trade talks with Washington.
Trump has said he is getting ready to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 Summit in Japan later this month, although China has yet to confirm any such meeting.
