Beijing is ready to defend its interests in the trade war with the United States

46
Beijing does not want to start a trade war with Washington, but if it occurs, he is able to protect his interests, reports RIA News statement by the Minister of Commerce of China, Zhong Shan.




I would like to note that there are no winners in trade wars, and if it arises (between the US and China), then this will be a real catastrophe not only for the two countries, but also for the entire world economy. Beijing does not want to start a trade war and cannot be its initiator, however, we are able to meet any challenge and protect the interests of our country and our people,
said Zhong Shan at a press conference.

He said that China and the United States "began to actively develop their trade and economic relations 40 years ago, during this time, the scale of mutual trade grew 232 times, mutual investments have already exceeded 230 billion dollars."

According to the minister, the potential of cooperation between the two countries is quite large, and "of course, with such indicators it is impossible to avoid some problems."

He pointed out that the possibility of the start of a trade war worries the whole world, therefore "both parties should make joint efforts to strengthen cooperation."

Earlier, Donald Trump announced that he was introducing import duties on steel in 25% and on aluminum in 10%. According to him, the duties are introduced "in defense of America's national security." In response, Beijing called on the White House to abolish imposed duties as soon as possible, which harm both other countries and America itself.

        The schizoid belief of Americans in their "exceptionalism" reduces their vision, hearing and ability to analyze chains of probable cause-and-effect relationships, and prevents them from acting farsightedly. If anyone destroys the dollar empire, it is the United States itself, turning away from it the main players who have influence on the political and economic relations of states in the world. The joke about the Greatest Threat to US National Security - the two square miles that the Capitol and the White House stand on, is not a joke, but a statement of fact.

      Why is there steel and aluminum for China. Now, if Trump imposes a duty on Chinese clothes and household appliances, this will be a serious blow. winked

    Recall earlier Donald Trump said that he introduces import duties on steel at 25% and on aluminum at 10%. According to him, duties are introduced “in defense of America’s national security”

    This “defense of America’s national security” will come out sideways. The Chinese, in the article about them, will not let themselves be offended. This is not the same China of the 50s of the last century, it will be able to fend for itself.

    Honestly, I believe that the Chinese can start a trade war with the United States, but all the exclamations from the EU, it seems to me, will remain unanswered. The Americans are too tight on the EU, or rather all the leaders. Until all the Americans wanted to do with Europe, everything is they did it.

    Interestingly, did Trump calculate the cost of smelting American steel and aluminum?
    Interestingly, did Trump take into account that the price for America will automatically increase by a percentage of the duty?
    Trump certainly made a beautiful gesture, like he supports his own.
    But what a penny it will pour him ...

    I remember when the Union was soaked they talked about a nuclear war, they frightened the consequences of a nuclear war as a result of the gifted, they persuaded (us) to ruin their country. And as practice has shown, the threat of war has not gone anywhere. And this "trading" will never end.

    For this, sanctions and other restrictions will be imposed on China - you cannot defend yourself in a war against the United States. Only the United States has the right to defend itself.
