What hope for markets in the US-China trade talks?

What hope for markets in the US-China trade talks?”

"The Chinese side immediately sent military vessels and aircraft to conduct verification and identification on the USA ship and warned it to leave", Lu told the briefing.

Chinese officials spoke to their United States counterparts as they arrived in Beijing for talks aimed at deescalating an ongoing trade war. President Donald Trump has accused China of pursuing dishonest economic practices, including currency manipulation and the forced sharing of intellectual property, among other accusations that the White House has labeled a threat to job security at home.

Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish is leading a U.S. working team for two days of meetings in Beijing.

After these discussions, Trump is expected to hold talks with Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan later this month at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, according to the South China Morning Post.

Some analysts say that China - Pyongyang's key diplomatic ally and main source of trade - could use Kim's visit as a bargaining chip in the United States trade talks.

Officials from both countries are meeting in China this week in the first face-to-face interaction they've had since last November, when they agreed to a 90-day cease-fire in their trade dispute.

Lu Kang, spokesman for China's foreign ministry, said on Monday that Chinese military aircraft and naval vessels were dispatched to identify the U.S. vessel and warn it to leave the area near the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, claimed by China.

If no deal is reached by 2 March, Trump has said he will proceed with raising tariffs to 25% from 10% on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports at a time when China's economy is slowing significantly.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNBC that the United States and China are "making progress" on trade.

China has lodged "stern representations" with the United States over a US navy vessel sailing through the disputed South China Sea, as US officials joined trade talks in Beijing to seek a de-escalation in the Sino-US trade war.

The voyage of the USS McCampbell marks the first publicized FONOP operation of the U.S.in the South China Sea for 2019.

The operation was not about any one country or to make a political statement, McMarr said in a statement to the Reuters news agency.

China called it a violation of its sovereignty that has damaged "peace, safety and order" in the waterway.

Trump imposed import tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese goods a year ago and has threatened more to pressure Beijing to change its practices on issues ranging from industrial subsidies to intellectual property to hacking.

"This trade fight couldn't have come at a worse time for China".

As the Trump administration continues trade negotiations with China, the USA delegation is taking additional steps to make sure the Communist country follows through on its pledges.

Lu said the two countries have agreed to hold "positive and constructive" discussions.

The talks are occurring as Chinese growth - 6.5 percent in the July-to-September period - fell to its lowest point in a decade. The move prompted China to increase tariffs on Dollars 110 billion of USA goods. There is no question that the Chinese want the deal, they need the deal.
