The Chinese president recently told the media that China was not in favour of a trade war but if the situation demands it would prepare itself for one. The US president also described China as a friend and said the USA would like to open doors in front of China for discussions.

Chinese Commerce Ministry recently announced a tariff hike in two steps . In the initial stage it would increase the tariff of 15 percent on 120 products including steel pipes, dried fruits , wine worth $977 million and in the next stage 25 percent on $1. 99 on Pork and recycled aluminium. China is also a big market for the fruit growers of California, Michigan and other states and hence president Trumps decision of tariff hike will have a negative upon them . Hence China advised the US president to change his decision for the sake of a healthy bilateral relationship between the countries.
