DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - China will not devalue its yuan, also known as the renminbi, or start a trade war, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.

Xi told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that China stood for open, transparent and win-win trade agreements, and called on other countries not to blame others when tackling “difficulties”.

“China will keep its door wide open and not close it,” Xi said.
