China is in touch with the United States and communication channels are smooth, a senior Chinese Commerce Ministry official said on Friday, after US President Donald Trump announced plans to target up to $60 billion in Chinese goods with tariffs.

Chen Fuli, director-general of the ministry's department of treaty and law, told reporters that China was not afraid of a trade war and was well prepared, adding that China would defend its rights.
