BEIJING (Reuters) – China and the United States should resume timely communication on trade and other issues, an adviser to the Chinese cabinet said on Thursday, stressing that the world’s two biggest economies are too intertwined to be decoupled.

“China and the United States should communicate on key issues, and the scope of communication should go back to normal, not just on trade issues,” Zhu Guangyao, a cabinet adviser and former vice finance minister, told a briefing in Beijing. “We should resume strategic communication at various levels, including politics, diplomacy and economy.”
