Chinese Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Gao Feng said that the trade talks with the US this week were extensive and laid down the foundation for resolving trade war between the countries, while speaking at a press conference in Beijing on Thursday.

He also explained that "The extension of the talks shows that both sides deal with them seriously, carefully, and honestly, and work together to achieve the important consensus of the two heads of state."

However, he didn't give more information about the results and the next step for the talks.

Tensions between the world's two largest economies escalated over 2018, with the United States slapping tariffs on Chinese goods, and Beijing responding in kind.
