Amid high inflation, removal of additional US tariffs on China is in the fundamental interests of US consumers and businesses, and is beneficial to the United States, China and the world, Shu Jueting, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Commerce, said on Thursday.

She made the remarks at a media briefing after being asked for comments on US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen's statement on Wednesday she is advocating for eliminating some tariffs on Chinese imports, because they aren't strategic and are hurting US consumers and businesses.
