The United States has strongly accused China of playing the blame game and backpedaling trade agreements between both countries. Comments from Trump administration came after China’s released paper accused Washington of hindrance in trade talks.
Earlier, United States restarted the trade war by imposing tariffs on Chinese product which forced Beijing to strike back. The escalating trade conflict between the two countries has deeply affected the trade relations between both countries for few years. The trade tussle gets worse in the recent month after the US ban on Chinese telecoms giant Huawei.
There were some hopes of signing US-China trade deal but it lost after Donald Trump announced tariffs on $200bn of Chinese products. The United States Trade Representative (USTR) has accused China of backpedaling on important elements. USTR further said that China has continued a blame game which misrepresented the nature of trade negotiations.
China has published a White Paper describing Beijing role in trade talks and demanded the removal of additional tariffs on Chinese exports. China called ‘mutual respect’ a key to reach an agreement of combine interest. The paper further elaborated that none of the countries have to cross the other’s red line as each country has the right of development. According to analysts, the United States wants to keep imposing the tariffs and also want to become a sole arbiter of US-China trade deal.
US-China trade war has already deeply affected the global economy. Meanwhile, China exports rate to the United States has declined to 9.7% this year. US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will encounter each other in Japan’s G20 summit in June.
