During the EU six-month presidency, Germany intends to make efforts to resolve the conflict between the US and China, said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
According to him, "we Europeans especially cannot have an interest in the conflicting interests between China and the US becoming irreconcilable," DW reported.
Maas called for preventing a split in the world into areas of interest for China and the US.
The FM also confirmed that the planned EU-China summit will be held in September.
"There are too many important topics that we need to discuss with China," Maas said.
According to him, EU aims to get a commitment from Beijing for "ambitious climate goals and fair global competition."
