Beijing warned the White House against trade war

23
China demands from Washington to refrain from executing announced decisions in the field of trade, reports RIA News statement by the Chinese ambassador to the United States.




We urge the United States to refrain from executing, to make decisions carefully and to avoid endangering the trade relations between China and the United States in order to harm others - in the end it will end in harm for themselves (the United States),
the statement said.

The ambassador also expressed disappointment with the actions of the American authorities and said that he was firmly opposed to such measures. He also stressed that Beijing is not afraid of trade war.

If the US starts a trade war, China will fight to the end to protect its legitimate interests by all necessary means,
added on.

Later, the Chinese government published a list of American products that could be subject to duty as a response.

On Thursday, Donald Trump signed a memorandum, in which he demanded that the US sales representative "submit a list of Chinese goods subject to tariff increases in 15-day," and also initiate a lawsuit against the Chinese side in the WTO regarding alleged licensing violations.

      The turnover in which American business is also interested, such measures can turn against Trump.

        "and also initiate a lawsuit against the Chinese side in the WTO on alleged violations in the field of licensing."

        What about the production of RPGs and the Kalashnikovs? Ah, gentlemen, Americans?

        It is possible, but China will suffer much more than the United States if taxes are introduced. Compare the share of export-import trade between the USA and China, and everything will fall into place

        Trump is primarily an oligarch and thinks purely on an economic plane. I did not notice that he paid due attention to geopolitics. He is trying to return production to the USA and this is correct but acts rudely. He runs the risk of starting a war, winning one or two battles, and then losing the war, as he apparently ignores the influence of geopolitics on the stability of dollar hegemony. It may simply not have time to restore all areas of production in the United States before the collapse of the dollar pyramid, which itself accelerates.

          laughing This is still far from the worst option for the total duty increase.

        Quite. The command of the first Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning. The first official photo. The name of the commander of the ship "Zheng" 峥 - means "cool" (about the mountain peak), and the name of the political commissar "wen" 文 can be translated as "cultural"

      The Chinese also know how to introduce duties.
      China's Department of Commerce has published a list of 128 US-imported goods for which new customs duties will be introduced. The list is divided into 8 groups.

      The document states that if countries fail to reach a trade compromise, goods of the first group, in which 120 points, will be charged duties of 15 percent. And after studying the negative impact of measures taken by the United States, fees for the second group will begin to operate - including aluminum and livestock products. And that will be 25 percent.

    So that's it? Did not express concern, but warned? Well, it’s necessary, but what is it possible?

    BEIJING, 23 MAR - RIA News. The Ministry of Commerce of China on Friday published on its website a list of 128 goods imported from the United States that may be subject to duties as countermeasures on US and steel and aluminum duties. RIA News https://ria.ru/economy/20180323/1517078353 .html

    Well, something like that they will have. So far.

    The trade war will play against the dollar, which means it will lead to the collapse of the United States. Its untying is a fundamental mistake of mattresses.

      In no case. There is no such force on the planet that can stop the wrapper for cutting candy wrappers. They will lose, unleash the 3rd world. As always, nothing new. An abscess must be removed while the platform for the printing press exists - the world will always be sausage.

      This is not a mistake, this is the lesser of evils, they have no choice. In anticipation of a possible war, US dependence on imported goods is fraught, so they are forced to go on the defensive.

        Today, mattresses hindered the introduction of duties on steel and aluminum for some, but temporarily.
        “For the following countries, tariffs are suspended until May 1: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, the EU and South Korea,” the White House said in a statement.

        For these countries will develop other measures to ensure US national security. In respect of other countries, the decree on the introduction of duties comes into force on March 23. This was told by US representative on trade negotiations Robert Lighthizer.

      Did you see the president’s appeal to the Federal Assembly? Not... No. ? Well, reconsider again. When viewing, pay attention to it facing the West. The phrase "You didn’t listen to us then. Listen to us now," which seems to go down in history. This is the key message to the West.
