US President Donald Trump said that he still expects to discuss with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at the next G-20 summit, giving an alert that he will impose new tariffs if there is no meeting.
The US President told media while questioned about the matter of attending the summit by Xi Jinping later this month in Japan would lead to triggering the massive new tariffs. But the US President said the meeting was “scheduled” and “I think he will go”. The US President included, “ I would be surprised if he didn’t go”, he also added, “I think he’s going, I haven’t heard that he’s not. We’re expected to meet. ”
A Chinese Foreign Ministry representative said last month that he had “no information at present” on the discussions between the US President and Chinese Counterpart Xi Jinping.
The US President has been attempting to sonogram China into a vital change on the trade policies which the President argues have for decades pushed the United States at an illicit disadvantage.
The two largest economies in the world supposed to be close to hitting a negotiation until the discussions stalled last month. Washington claims that Beijing moved away at the last minute, while the Chinese leaders indicated that it is progressively prepared for a long turmoil.
The US President has already enforced 25 percent duties on $200 billion of Chinese imports. China has replied along with penal tariffs on $60 billion in US goods.
The US Presidents claims that he is ready to enforce tariffs on an additional $300 billion in Chinese imports if no improvement has not been achieved. The G-20 summit will be held in Osaka on 28-29 June.
