China says it will retaliate over hiked Trump tariffs

But Trump warned he was also more than happy to use tariffs in resolving his differences with China.

The negotiators met Thursday evening.

Marianne Schneider-Petsinger, a trade analyst at the thinktank Chatham House, said: "The Chinese response so far has been quite measured, knowing that Trump is playing to a domestic audience and with his re-election looming needs a strong U.S. economy".

Talks are scheduled to resume Friday morning, the White House said. The sudden change in attitude on the U.S. side has once again cast a shadow of uncertainty over the China-U.S. trade relations. They deny their plans violate Beijing's trade commitments but have offered to change details that provoke the most foreign opposition.

The U.S. government has filed plans to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10% to 25%.

Analysts said the Chinese are still willing to talk after Mr Trump's latest threats because they want to retain the moral high ground in negotiations, while they also recognise the importance of resolving the trade war.

"We should not hurt innocent people", Liu told CCTV.

President Trump also said he received a "beautiful letter" from Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping and that they would probably speak soon.

US government and private sector sources previously told Reuters that a draft trade agreement was riddled with reversals by China that undermined core USA demands.In each of the seven chapters of the draft, China had deleted its commitments to change laws to resolve core complaints that caused the United States to launch a trade war: Theft of USA intellectual property and trade secrets; forced technology transfers; competition policy; access to financial services; and currency manipulation.

This week's setback was unexpected.

Before this week's acrimony, both sides said negotiations were making progress, which helped to stabilize financial markets.

"By the way, do you see the tariffs we're doing?". They wouldn't identify the specific issues involved. "In order to address the crisis, we need to get to the very heart of the problem", she noted. Trump tweeted, threatening to raise the tariffs.

China's Commerce Ministry warned Beijing would not "capitulate to any pressure" and threatened retaliation if United States tariffs go up to 25 percent as scheduled on Friday - punctuating the drastic deterioration after months of seemingly collegial talks.

Chinese producers of the impacted goods this week said the abrupt tariff hike had wreaked havoc on operations and would bring high costs, layoffs and further shifts of production to Southeast Asia.

So the tariffs won't start taking affect until those shipments complete the three- to four-week voyage across the Pacific Ocean.

Trump said if the two sides can not make a deal, the United States would go back to manufacturing products that China now makes. "This is the worst-case scenario we modeled previous year that resulted in recession conditions in the United States, a rapid reduction of growth in China, and slower global trade", said Steve Cochrane, chief APAC economist at Moody's Analytics in Singapore. Finished apparel, textile home furnishings and other made-up textile goods equate to 93.5% of US imports from China in our sector, while fiber, yarn, and fabric imports from China represent only 6.5%.

"I would suspect the USA will just hand China an ultimatum". For China, a country that intends to reform its economic system by allowing the market to play a bigger role, normal trade relations with the US and sound bilateral investments are conducive to a steady economic growth.

Trump told supporters at a rally in Florida on Wednesday that China "broke the deal", and vowed not to back down on imposing new tariffs on Chinese imports unless Beijing "stops cheating our workers". The men were detained in apparent retaliation after Canada arrested a Chinese executive at the request of the United States; the woman faces fraud charges in America. U.S. oil prices slid and U.S. Treasury yields fell as investors sought safe-haven assets.

Beijing has pledged to take countermeasures if Washington goes ahead with the tariff increase, a development that would further roil global markets and affect the world economy.

Dow futures were down 0.8%. Losses were limited to 0.6% on London's FTSE 100, but Paris' CAC 40 and Frankfurt's DAX suffered steeper declines. Hong Kong's Hang Seng gained 0.9% to 28,543.86, while the Shanghai Composite gained 1.5% to 2,898.34 after briefly trading 2% higher.

The report from the Commerce Department on Thursday came as the United States and China began two days of make-or-break talks to salvage a faltering trade deal.

Stock indexes around the world fell for a fourth day in a row on Thursday, though Wall Street closed above session lows after comments from President Donald Trump about U.S.
