“Over the next few days, the U.S. delegation of more than 50 people will discuss with China’s team on implementing a consensus,” the ministry said in a statement on its website www.mofcom.gov.cn.

Earlier on Wednesday, China lashed out at renewed threats from the White House on trade, saying it was ready to fight back if Washington was looking for a trade war, days ahead of a planned visit by U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.
