“I came to Washington with sincerity,” Chinese Vice Premier Liu He told reporters after he arrived in the U.S. Thursday for yet another round of trade talks, state-run CCTV reported.

Liu said he hoped to “engage in rational and candid exchanges with the U.S. side” under such “special circumstances.”

Earlier this week, U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to raise tariffs on $200 billion of annual Chinese imports to 25% from 10%. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer Wednesday confirmed the tariff increase would begin Friday morning U.S. time.

The vice premier admitting that his delegation’s trip to the U.S. is “under pressure,” said China is showing the “greatest” sincerity to solve related problems with the "best solutions."

Liu said the two economies are in one “industrial chain” that involve each other, and lifting tariffs on China will be harmful to both sides.

Liu had a working dinner with Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and will continue related talks Friday morning, the White House said.
