BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s commerce ministry said on Thursday that trade issues with the United States can only be resolved through talks as equals, adding that China will stick to the steady opening of its economy regardless of U.S. actions.

The United States and China had constructive talks about current trade issues, ministry spokesman Gao Feng told reporters at a regular briefing, referring to vice minister Wang Shouwen’s visit to Washington last week.
