China trade war will hurt American firms the most: Li Keqiang
"China hopes that no matter what bumps this relationship may run into, we hope this relationship will continue to forge in the right direction".
China does not want a trade war with the U.S. and will not devalue the renminbi to boost exports, the country's premier said on Thursday, as he struck a conciliatory note ahead of a series of high-level bilateral meetings.
Addressing a news conference on the final day of the annual meeting of China's parliament, Li reaffirmed China's commitment to denuclearise the Korean peninsula. "It also shows the high level of complementarity of our economies", said the Premier of the State Council of China. "China has no intention to overreach itself".
Earlier this month, China's National Socio-Economic Development Plan for 2017 set a 6.5-percent target for GDP growth following last year's record low growth figures.
Li issued a call for all sides to work toward defusing the situation, apparently speaking for China in saying "no one wants to have chaos at their doorstep".
China says, however, its leverage over Pyongyang is limited.

Li, in a question-and-answer session that lasted almost two hours, downplayed fears about structural risks to China's economy, pledged to "fight and win a battle on smog", and advocated for economic cooperation between the mainland and Hong Kong. But he added that Chinese policymakers need to "take very seriously the risks we are facing on the domestic front, especially in the financial sector". "We will take prompt and targeted measures to prevent them from further spreading", Li said.
