Beijing will honor its trade deal with the U.S. and wants to see better ties with Washington, senior Chinese officials said Thursday.

Zhu said relations with the U.S. were “far from satisfactory” with communications at a “standstill.”
“We hope through communications we can enhance our cooperation and mutual trust,” he said.
