China appreciates US decision to postpone new duties
Gao Feng, a spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, commented on the U.S. decision to postpone the introduction of new duties.
“The Chinese side welcomes the gesture of goodwill from the United States,” TASS quoted him as saying.
According to him, for their part, Chinese enterprises have already begun asking for prices for the purchase of US agricultural products.
“We hope that the parties will move towards each other and create favorable conditions for consultations,” Feng added.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump said he would transfer the increase in duties on Chinese goods from October 1 to October 15.
In August, Trump announced the upcoming increase in duties on goods from China, which will be imported from September and October 2019.
In May, expert Dmitry Rodionov, in an interview with the FAN, noted that the Washington-Beijing trade talks ended in nothing and led to a new round of trade war.
