US, China hold more trade talks overshadowed by Kim visit

These are two issues that president Trump has for months made clear are requirements for relenting on tariffs and making any trade agreement.

United States officials held a second day of trade talks with Chinese counterparts in Beijing on Tuesday, overshadowed by an unannounced visit from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"The Chinese side immediately sent military vessels and aircraft to conduct verification and identification on the US ship and warned it to leave", Lu told the briefing.

Beijing and Washington have raised tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's goods, prompting fears the conflict will dampen global economic growth that is showing signs of slowing. Officials had expected to wrap up on Tuesday, but surprised observers by returning to the negotiating table for a third day. There is no question that the Chinese want the deal, they need the deal.

"We urge the United States to immediately cease this kind of provocation", he said, adding that China has lodged "stern complaints with the US" over the move.

Since March, the USA has slapped tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods, while China has placed a series of retaliatory tariffs on US goods totaling $110 billion.

They say Beijing's goal probably is to show enough progress to persuade Trump to extend his deadline. They have tried to defuse pressure for more sweeping change by offering trade concessions including purchasing more American soybeans, natural gas and other exports.

In the longer term, the final tariffs might "remain for several years", Tu said. According to The Wall Street Journal, Chinese officials responded by breaking the list into 142 items.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday the two sides were narrowing their differences, with Chinese officials offering greater purchases of USA goods and services and Cabinet-level follow-up meetings expected later this month.

"China will continue to take the necessary measures to defend national sovereignty and security".

Forecasters at the International Monetary Fund and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have downgraded their outlook for the global economy, citing among other things the costs and uncertainty arising from the standoff between the USA and China.

The negotiations, which were originally scheduled to last just two days, mark the first time that large mid-level trade delegations have met to hash out specifics of a potential deal since the Trump administration first slapped tariffs on Chinese goods.
