The president passed on his complements to the aircraft manufacturer:

“Boeing has long been a supporter, participant and promoter of business cooperation between China and the United States. Boeing is an excellent example of win- win business cooperation between China and the United States.”

Boeing said it does not plan any job cuts in the US.
