BEIJING (Reuters) - Chin’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday rebuffed U.S. criticism that a Chinese white paper misrepresented trade negotiations between the world’s two largest economies, saying the United States should stop making a laughing stock of itself.

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing that every setback in the trade talks was caused by the United States breaking consensus.
