"The Chinese side reiterates that it opposes unilateralism and trade protectionism practices and does not accept any unilateral trade restriction measures", the ministry said.

Invited by the U.S., the delegation, headed by Commerce Vice Minister Wang Shouwen, will meet with a team of negotiators led by David Malpass, undersecretary for global affairs of the U.S. Treasury Department, the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement (link in Chinese).

Trade talks will be held late August.

The meeting would end what had been a lull in talks between the two sides, but it is unclear whether it will take place before or after August 23, when Washington is due to activate additional tariffs on $16 billion of Chinese goods. Soybeans and other grains from the United States were hit with extra import tariffs last month, bringing trade nearly to a halt, as part of the tit-for-tat dispute between the world's two largest economies.
