China vows to fight for its own interests in USA trade talks

China vows to defend its own interests in US trade talks

Representative Kevin Brady, the committee's Republican chairman, said he aired those concerns at the meeting and urged Liu to keep working with the administration toward a solution. But the status of these meetings remains in flux, one senior administration official said, and more names could be added, particularly if Trump intervenes.

The comments followed Trump's surprise announcement on Sunday that the administration was exploring ways to soften the blow from a ban on exporting crucial U.S. technology to the company, which Washington says violated sanctions and misled USA officials. The officials were granted anonymity to discuss the matter.

In addition to Navarro, senior American officials who will be participating include National Economic Council Chair Larry Kudlow and trade adviser Everett Eissenstat, the second official said.

Meanwhile, Trump earlier on Wednesday denied caving to China over U.S. sanctions on the telecoms equipment maker ZTE.

Before officials travelled to Beijing for talks, the U.S. issued a series of demands, including that China reduce its trade surplus with the United States by US$200 billion in two years.

"We hope the related departments quickly take real action", said Gao, while relaying some of China's other demands such as fair and equitable treatment for Chinese products and investment.


He also said the US has not yet seen China's demands yet and added, "There has been no folding as the media would love people to believe". Backing off the ban on sales of components to ZTE was reportedly a prerequisite stipulated by the Chinese for trade talks to even begin.

"Nothing has happened with ZTE except as it pertains to the larger trade deal", Trump said on Twitter. It is responsible for coordinating and supervising the country's economic and financial business.

This week's talks are taking place against the backdrop of three days of hearings on the administration's plan to impose tariffs on an initial $50 billion worth of Chinese goods to put pressure on China to do a better job of protecting US intellectual property and to halt practices that force American companies to transfer technology.

Liu met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, many of whom do not support Trump's vow to impose tariffs on China if they don't change their approach to trade. Will Navarro be able to negotiate the US-China trade war terms? -China trade imbalance and other problems with the trading relationship.

"The message that I delivered was one that we are unified when it comes to calling out unfair practices and just looking for an opportunity to have a fair trade relationship", Reed said.
