SHANGHAI: China’s senior diplomat Wang Yi told US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that recent US words and actions had harmed the interests of China and its enterprises, and it should show restraint, China’s foreign ministry said on Saturday.
Speaking to Pompeo by telephone, Wang said the United States should not go “too far” in the current trade dispute between the two sides.
He said China was still willing to resolve differences through negotiations, but they should be on an equal footing.
Speaking on Iran, Wang said China hoped all parties will exercise restraint and act with caution to avoid escalating tensions.
