China doesn’t want trade war with US, says Premier Li

Prime News, International, Beijing, March 20:- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday said that China did not want to enter into a trade war with the United States, adding that the war would only damage the relationship between the two sides.

He further said that there will be no winner from any trade war between China and the United States, and that he hopes both sides can remain “calm.”

Speaking at the closure of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC), Premier Li said that Beijing wanted stable and good relations with Washington DC.

Premier Li’s comments on trade war come after US President Donald Trump is preparing to impose a package of USD 60 billion in annual tariffs against China, following through on a long-time threat, which according to him will punish China for intellectual property infringement and help create more American jobs.

The NPC is the national legislature of China. With 2,924 members as of 2017, it is the largest parliamentary body in the world. –(NGB, Inputs: Agencies)
