Trade talks in Beijing between the world's two biggest economies entered a third day on Wednesday, amid signs of progress on issues including purchases of USA farm and energy commodities and increased US access to China's markets.
State newspaper China Daily said on Wednesday that Beijing is keen to put an end to its trade dispute with the United States, but that it will not make any "unreasonable concessions" and that any agreement must involve compromise on both sides.

Trump raised import duties on Chinese goods in July over longstanding complaints Beijing steals technology or pressures foreign companies to hand it over.
Trump imposed import tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese goods past year and has threatened more to pressure Beijing to change its practices on issues ranging from industrial subsidies to intellectual property to hacking. Trump wants Beijing to roll back initiatives like "Made in China 2025", which calls for the state-led creation of global competitors in such fields as robotics and artificial intelligence.
Even so, Lu said, "China's development has ample tenacity and huge potential". Both Taiwan and Vietnam also claim the Paracel Islands, and the USA has contended that its ships passed through only worldwide waters, which Chinese officials refuted.
