Report: China Won’t Buy U.S. Agricultural Products If U.S. ‘Flip-Flops’ in Trade Talks
China will not buy American agriculture products if the U.S. “flip-flops” again in future trade negotiations, Chinese state media said on Friday and reported by the South China Morning Post. A commentary by Taoran Notes, a social media account affiliated with Economic Daily, said recent remarks by U.S. officials signaled that America was not treating China on an equal basis.
It referred to remarks by White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who said the US would not remove tariffs already imposed on Chinese imports during negotiations. On Saturday, U.S. President Donald Trump said, following a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, that China had agreed to buy more US products.
