China Appeals to Washington: 'Get along with Us'

Wednesday, 21 August 2019 06:38 AM

BEIJING (AP) — China is appealing to Washington to "get along with us" after President Donald Trump said "somebody had to take China on" over trade complaints.

A foreign ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, said Wednesday that trade has been "mutually beneficial" and expressed hope Washington can "meet China halfway" in settling disagreements.

Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed in June to resume negotiations aimed at ending a tariff war over trade and technology but neither has indicated willingness to compromise.

Trump responded Tuesday to complaints about the economic impact on the United States by telling reporters "somebody had to take China on."

Geng said, "We hope the United States can get along with us to expand cooperation and promote Chinese-U.S. relations."
