Equality and mutual benefit means the consultations have to happen on an equal basis, the agreement to be reached has to be beneficial for both sides.

Meeting each other half way means both sides have to compromise and make concessions, not just one side." The two countries are in the middle of a costly trade dispute and have slapped increasingly severe tariffs on each other's imports.

China has vowed to not give in on issues of principle nor under U.S. pressure.
