Spokesperson Hua Chunying said that China and the US share many common interests and that bilateral cooperation will lead to mutual benefits, reports Efe news.
“China’s door is open for negotiations and the US delegation has arrived in Beijing, in the next few days the big delegation will hold discussions with China on how to implement our bilateral consensus,” said Hua.
“We hope the US will work with us to implement the consensus we have reached so as to deliver more good news and more benefits to the business communities of the two sides.”
