China urged the U.S. to take steps to repair damaged ties between the two countries, as the Biden administration weighs a new investigation into Chinese industrial subsidies. 

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian called on the U.S. to uphold the spirit of the telephone conversation last week between President Joe Biden and Xi Jinping. Zhao was responding to a question about a Bloomberg News report Friday regarding a meeting on a potential investigation into Chinese subsidies and their economic impact.

“We hope the U.S. and Chinese departments concerned will act in accordance with the spirit of the heads of states’ call, properly deal with differences, step up cooperation and get bilateral relations back to the right track of steady development,” Zhao told regular news briefing Monday in Beijing.
