US President Barack Obama urges China to tackle excess capacity

China has been accused of unfair practices by firms overseas for dumping products at low prices in their home markets.

In April, China promised to reduce its steel output, following a crisis meeting attended by 30 nations.

The President met Premier Li Keqiang on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

In a statement from The White House, President Obama also urged China to establish a level playing field, so that all firms can compete fairly in the country.
