BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Monday it is willing to work with the United States for a positive outcome in trade negotiations this week.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang made the comment at a regular briefing.
Vice Premier Liu He will attend the talks in Washington from May 15 to 19. High-level discussions in Beijing earlier this month appeared to make little progress but there have been signs recently of some easing in tensions.
