The United States has shipped several million tonnes of soybeans to China since the two country's leaders met in June, Chinese state media said on Sunday, ahead of fresh trade talks in Shanghai this week.

Chinese companies have made inquiries about buying U.S. soybeans, cotton, pork, sorghum and will continue to purchase U.S. agricultural goods if prices and quality remain reasonable, Chinese official broadcaster CCTV said on Sunday.

The reports said the United States should take specific measures to make good on its promises to improve economic and trade ties.
