Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on another $325 billion of goods, covering nearly all the remaining Chinese imports into the United States - including consumer products such as cellphones, computers and clothing - if the meeting with Xi produces no progress in resolving a host of U.S. complaints around the way China does business.
U.S. Aims to Restart China Trade Talks, Will Not Accept Conditions on Tariff Use
STEPANAKERT, JUNE 26, ARTSAKHPRESS: The two sides could agree not to impose new tariffs as a goodwill gesture to get negotiations going, the official said, but he said it was unclear if that would happen, Reuters reports.
The United States was not willing to come to the Xi meeting with concessions, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Washington wants Beijing to come back the table with the promises it withdrew before talks broke down, he said.
