BEIJING – China and the United States should address trade issues on the basis of mutual respect, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Monday, as U.S. officials urged Beijing to take concrete action to meet commitments under a trade deal.

There are no winners from trade frictions, Zhao Lijian, spokesman for the foreign ministry, told reporters in a news conference.
