    HONG KONG, July 31 (Reuters) - China's ministry of commerce said on Friday that it hopes the economic and trade community will continue to play a role as a stabilizer in its relations with the United States, as this will benefit all countries in the world.

    "The current Sino-U.S. relations are facing a complex and severe situation. It is hoped that the U.S business community will continue to play a good role as a bridge between the two countries," vice-commerce minister Wang Shouwen said in a statement published on the ministry's website.

    Wang made the remark in an online forum with representatives of the American Chamber of Commerce in China. (Reporting by Twinnie Siu and Meg Shen; editing by John Stonestreet)
