China says USA blaming Xi for blocking trade deal is 'bogus'

China foreign ministry says trade war has become biggest 'confidence killer' for world economy

The World Trade Organization is considering a challenge by China against the latest US tariff proposal.

"This is a war that everyone loses in", Ken Lewis, the owner of New Riff Distillery, says in the ad.

Li, the premier, said China and the European Union agreed to take steps to "safeguard free trade" and the global multilateral regulatory system.

"The US has fabricated any justification for its actions related to the trade war, including by interfering with national security", said the spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry in China, Hua Chunying.

That's because the recently imposed tariffs, and new tariffs threatened to come, will likely disrupt trade patterns sending buyers in the United States and China to places where its cheaper to import certain species.

China has previously prevailed in WTO dispute settlement against the United States in a successful challenge to restrictions on steel imports imposed under President George W. Bush in 2003. A similar theme is visible in Canada levying 10 percent tariffs earlier this month on $12.5 billion worth of imports of USA products.

After weeks of apparently fruitless negotiations, the United States early this month imposed 25 percent tariffs on approximately $34 billion of Chinese mechanical and technological products, sparking an immediate response from Beijing, which said it would hit back dollar for dollar.

China is the largest importer of soybeans in the worldwide community.

The two senior European politicians came to Beijing for an EU-China summit, which produced a communique committing both sides to the multilateral global trading system.

Many of those are from foreign enterprises operating in China as part of supply chain trades, she added.

"A number of analysts have suggested that the impact of the Washington-Beijing trade conflict will be relatively muted on the Chinese economy, noting that exports to the U.S.do not hold a commanding presence in China's economic portfolio".

"We need new rules in the areas of industrial subsidies, intellectual property and forced technology transfers, the reduction of trade costs, as well as a new approach to development and more effective dispute settlement", Tusk said.

"High-value crustaceans, tilapia, shrimp, and squid trade flows between the U.S. and China are expected to slow down". Opponents of the new trade restrictions lined up to vent as the Commerce Department held a hearing on whether auto imports pose a threat to USA national security.

Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from most countries.

At the time, USA officials said, these tariffs were necessary given the findings of Commerce Department investigations under Section 232 of the 1962 Trade Expansion Act. Since the entry into the WTO for 17 years, China's initial heart has remained unchanged and its words and deeds have been the same.

Republican North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum said soybean growers in his state have an enormous stake in the US trade confrontation, as commodities markets recoil from the threat of retaliatory tariffs.
