BEIJING,

China will work to straighten out trade frictions with the US this year, the country's commerce minister told state media, following talks with US negotiators this week.

A large US delegation ended a three-day visit to Beijing Wednesday in the first face to face trade talks since President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping in December pledged a three-month truce in the escalating tariff spat.

FOUNDATION

China said the talks had "laid the foundation" to resolve mutual concerns on trade.
