China's Premier Li Keqiang has said that Beijing does not want to see a trade war with the United States and urged talks between the two countries to achieve common ground. Li said conflict won’t help rather it will aggravate the problem.
The Chinese Premier stressed that dialogue is the best way to settle differences.
Significantly, he said that issues that cannot immediately be solved should be "shelved" for the time being.
Li’s statement assumes significance in the backdrop of US President Trump softening his stance on "one China" policy, under which Washington acknowledges the Chinese position that there is only one China, of which Taiwan is a part.
