Trump Hints China Trade Moves for Argentina G20 After Xi Call

Donald Trump said his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping wants to make a deal to end an escalating trade war

Markets moved higher after Bloomberg reported US President Donald Trump wants to reach an agreement with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 nations summit in Argentina later this month.

Trump imposed new tariffs on roughly half of Chinese imports this summer while Beijing fired back with tariffs on most USA products.

Beijing and Washington have been involved in a trade spat since April 2018, when the United States started imposing steep tariffs on goods from China.

The report lit a fire under stock markets that have beset by fears of a full-blown trade war between the world's two biggest economies.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, center, announces the creation of a new initiative to crack down on Chinese intelligence officials pilfering intellectual property from USA corporations during a press conference in Washington, Nov. 1, 2018.

China and the United States can overcome their differences and get relations back on track if they work together in a spirit of mutual respect, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told a group of visiting US politicians on Thursday.

Washington, Europe and other trading partners say those violate China's market-opening obligations and some American officials worry they might erode USA industrial leadership.

Mr Xi said he was "very happy" to talk to Mr Trump again and that he puts "great importance [on] good relations with the president", according to Chinese state media.

US President Donald Trump delivers his speech as he and China's President Xi Jinping meet business leaders at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, November 9, 2017. The Chinese president also said he would like to meet Trump at the G20.

The push for a possible deal with China was prompted by the President's telephone call with Mr Xi on Thursday (Nov 1), the people said, requesting anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

"China has been hurt over the last number of months".

China and the United States are locked in an increasingly bitter trade war, with both countries have already placed tariffs on some of each others imports.

"We do hope that China and the United States will meet each other halfway and work together in the spirit of mutual respect and equality", he added. China has responded with retaliatory duties on $110 billion worth of USA goods.
