BEIJING (Sputnik) - Beijing strongly opposes the escalation of a trade war with Washington and is ready to continue consultations with the United States to overcome contradictions, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He said on Monday.

"China strongly opposes trade protectionism and blockade in the field of new technologies. China is making efforts to ensure the integrity of production chains, we are ready to resolve the existing problem through consultation and cooperation, we strongly oppose the escalation of a trade war", Liu said at the opening of the international exhibition Smart China Expo.

The statement by Liu, who has led the Chinese delegation at all trade negotiations with the United States, comes amid the acute trade conflict between the world's two largest economies.
