China, France Agree To Expand Trade, EU Raises "Difficult Issues"
China said on Monday it would buy more planes and agricultural products from France and work on market access issues, shoring up its trade ties with Europe as danger mounted of a tariff war with the United States.
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe late on Monday that China was planning to purchase more planes this year and was ready for more talks with France on buying Airbus aircraft.
"I explained to Mr Prime Minister that in recent years we have bought quite a lot of passenger aircraft, and there needs to be a period to digest this," Li told a joint news conference. "In spite of this, we are still willing to strengthen cooperation with France's Airbus."
