China has detailed and clarified problems raised by the US and showed great sincerity, Wang said.

China's laws regarding IPR protection completely meet WTO requirements, Wang said, adding China is opposed to any WTO member's move of making developing members shoulder extra obligations through dispute settlement system, Wang said.

China is studying the US request and will act actively, Wang said.
