German finmin welcomes sign that U.S. and China to hold trade talks

BEIJING, Jan 17 (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Thursday he welcomed a sign that the United States and China were going to hold talks again on trade after the two world powers spent much of the past months embroiled in a trade conflict.

“It is good that patience is paying off and that there are signs that there are further talks between China and the United States,” Scholz told reporters during a visit to Beijing. He added it would be good if this development were successful.

He said Germany and China had agreed that it was important to send a signal that the world remained multilateral and that everyone was trying to cooperate. (Reporting by Reuters Television Writing by Michelle Martin Editing by Paul Carrel)
