China’s Commerce Ministry struck a more conciliatory note on Wednesday after saying a State Department decision to restrict the use of computers made by PC firm Lenovo Group Ltd. smacked of a Cold War mentality.

Assistant Commerce Minister Huang Hai said that although China understood the right of other countries to use their own rules to regulate trade, it wanted a level playing field.

“All that we want is a fair trading environment. What we particularly want is no double standards,” Huang told reporters at a government signing ceremony.
