China says will sign EU investment deal 'as soon as possible'

China’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Co-operation (MOFCOM) said on Thursday that China and the European Union will hold talks regarding the investment deal next week.

The Ministry added that both parties will focus on the remaining text of the agreement and issues regarding the access onto the market with the aim of signing the treaty as soon as possible.

Xi then stated that the talks have to be "expedited" so the negotiations could be finished by the end of December
