U.S. companies have accused China of improperly subsidizing its solar sector as part of a no-holds-barred commercial battle for supremacy of the lucrative market.
"It is normal for the two sides to have friction and differences
of views," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a regular
news briefing in Beijing.
"We should not allow such friction to impair the sound development
of Sino-U.S. economic relations," he said, calling for negotiations to
help resolve trade disputes.
All of the Obama subsidizing and added taxes on the competition will not change the fact that the American people can not afford solar panels on their roofs. The American people need to get a job and get back to work.
