US President Donald Trump speaks about the government shutdown on January 25, 2019, from the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC.
US President Donald Trump in a statement said he has asked China to immediately remove all tariffs on US agricultural products.
PRESIDENT Donald Trump yesterday urged China to abolish tariffs on agricultural products imported from the USA, adding that trade talks between the rival powers are going well.
"This is very important for our great farmers - and me!" he said.
In July, the Trump administration gradually began slapping import taxes on Chinese goods to pressure Beijing into changing policies that hobble foreign competition and threaten USA technology.Читайте также: Bin Laden son stripped of Saudi passport as USA offers $1m bounty
Farmers are considered as a significant constituency for the Republican Party of Trump, and the trade war of the US president with China has had a massive impact on them. Beijing imposed tariffs a year ago on imports of soybeans, grain sorghum, pork and other items, slashing shipments of American farm products to China. In another late Friday tweet on February 22, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said more soybean purchases from China were coming. It says that it is "no longer appropriate" to increase the rates because of the progress in negotiations since December 2018. The tariff will remain at 10 per cent until further notice.
Trump, speaking to reporters in Hanoi Thursday after a summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, said: "Speaking of China we're very well on our way to doing something special".
Trump had announced the decision to delay the tariffs, as well as a planned summit to wrap up the trade agreement with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, earlier this week, reports CNN.
Trump on Sunday had lauded "substantial progress" in the talks covering "important structural issues including intellectual property protection, technology transfer, agriculture, services, currency, and many other issues" and resulting in "a very good weekend for U.S. & China!"При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
