China warns U.S. "unwise" to focus on yuan
BEIJING (Reuters) - It is not wise for the United States to point its finger at the yuan's exchange rate and demand appreciation, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Tuesday.
In a statement on its website, the ministry said that the United States should focus on its own economic recovery and work to maintain stability of its own currency.
The statement added that expectations for yuan appreciation were not strong, and that a stronger currency would do little to resolve the Sino-U.S. bilateral trade imbalance.
The yuan has rallied for nine straight days amid strong criticism from the United States about China's currency policy.
