USA says China playing 'blame game' in trade battle

"In the spirit of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit, we will control differences and strengthen cooperation to jointly safeguard the healthy and stable development of China-US economic and trade relations", the statement continued.

The statement said that in August 2017, at the President's instruction, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) conducted an investigation into China's practices relating to intellectual property rights, innovation, and technology development.

"There were no bitter recriminations, the repeated instances of United States backtracking were objectively laid out, and certainly no strong statement of threat or counter-measures was issued", said Gupta.

On June 2, the Chinese regime released a white paper outlining its position in the trade talks, in which it cited three alleged instances in which the United States backtracked on commitments made during negotiations.

"The United States is disappointed that the Chinese have chosen in the "White Paper" issued (on Sunday) and recent public statements to pursue a blame game misrepresenting the nature and history of trade negotiations between the two countries", USTR and Treasury said in the statement.

The white paper makes it clear that "one prerequisite for a trade deal is that the US should remove all additional tariffs imposed on Chinese exports and that China's purchase of USA goods should be realistic while ensuring that a proper balance in the text of the agreement is achieved to serve the common interests of both sides". China does not want a trade war with the US but won't shy away from one, according to the white paper.

The paper listed, in chronological order, three times when the USA backtracked on a deal. The white paper defines the China-U.S. commercial relationship as "the ballast and the propeller of the overall bilateral relationship".

RBI reduces repo rate by 25 basis points to 5.75 %
The RBI had retained its "neutral" stance after the rate cut in April but now it has changed its stance to "accommodative". Beyond another 25 bps rate cut in August, the RBI may find it hard to cut rates further in a rising inflation scenario.

The interwoven ties and intertwined interests between China and the United States determine that the two economics cannot be decoupled or completely isolated from each other, Zhang said. Both economies gained far more from USA tariffs on China than from Chinese duties on the US.

China states it will not back down to "major issues of principle".

The Southeast Asian nation, which shares a border with China, gained orders from trade diversion on tariffed goods equal to 7.9% of gross domestic product in the year through the first quarter of 2019, according to a study by Nomura Holdings Inc economists Rob Subbaraman, Sonal Varma and Michael Loo. However, the white paper said the White House demanded more as they were given new offers from their Chinese counterparts. Otherwise, U.S. exporters still facing flood-related shipping delays may seek to declare force majeure, traders said.

The Department, in a statement, said: "President Donald Trump is committed to taking action to address the unfair trade practices that China has engaged in for decades, which have contributed to persistent and unsustainable trade deficits, nearly Dollars 420 billion past year, and have caused severe harm to American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses".

"Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed", Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen, who led China's working-level team in the negotiations, said in Beijing June 2. It shows that the USA accusations are utterly unfounded and Washington is acting arbitrarily by slapping increased tariffs and imposing investment restrictions.

Finally in 1953 the armistice was signed, largely based upon China and North Korea's original proposals put forward in 1951, the paper said.

No official trade talks have been scheduled since the last round ended in May.
