China’s energy ties with the United States are set to deepen even as a trade spat between the world’s two largest economies roils financial markets, Wang Yilin, chairman of China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC), said on Monday.

“There is more room for cooperation than confrontation between China and the US,” Wang told Bloomberg.

“I hope our cooperation with US partners won’t be negatively affected by the trade disputes. I’m confident our cooperation will only get better and closer.”
