To put an end to the trade war between China and United States, the former on Thursday said that it has decided to send a top negotiator to the US to resume trade talks.

In a statement, the China’s Commerce Ministry said that Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen, the deputy representative on international trade negotiations, will meet senior US treasury official, David Malpass at the invitation of the US.

The Ministry added that Beijing welcomes the dialogue and communication on the basis of reciprocity, equality and integrity.

US and China plan to launch a new round of tit-for-tat tariffs on 16 billion US dollar worth of goods from each country on the 23rd of this month.

Washington has also lined up tariffs on an additional 200 billion US dollars in Chinese imports, with US President Donald Trump saying he could raise tariffs on those products to 25 percent instead of the previously touted 10 percent.
