China complains that U.S. is releasing negative information about trade relations

BEIJING, Dec 7 (Reuters) - China's Commerce Ministry
expressed concern on Thursday that the United States has been
spreading negative information about the trade relationship
between the world's two largest economies.

"Recently the United States has launched trade remedy
investigations into Chinese products and has continuously
released negative information," said Gao Feng, China's Commerce
Ministry spokesman.

"This has caused widespread concern among businesses in
China and the United States, especially among U.S. companies
that are willing to cooperate with and expand into China," he
said.

China's Commerce Ministry expressed "strong dissatisfaction
and firm opposition" on Saturday to a statement by the United
States to the World Trade Organization that it opposes granting
China market economy status, Xinhua reported.
