The move came after the U.S. plan to impose additional 10-percent tariffs on 300 billion U.S. dollars worth of Chinese imports, which seriously violated the consensus reached by the two heads of state in Osaka.

With a huge market, China is a promising destination for high-quality U.S. agricultural products, official sources said, hoping that the U.S. should earnestly implement the consensus reached in Osaka and be committed to fulfilling its promises to create necessary conditions for bilateral agricultural cooperation.
