China is obliged to buy more USA agricultural goods, according to Trump

US, China negotiators resume trade war talks Trump says China is letting U.S. down by not buying farm products

Chinese imports of USA goods fell 31.4% from a year earlier to $9.4 billion, while exports to the American market declined 7.8% to $39.3 billion, according to Chinese customs data.

"Mexico is doing great at the Border, but China is letting us down in that they have not been buying the agricultural products from our great Farmers that they said they would. Hopefully they will start soon", Trump said on Twitter.

Mr Trump said he will put on hold his earlier threat to slap on 25% of tariffs on US$300 billion in Chinese imports.

Liang's complaint came a day after Trump accused Beijing of "letting us down" by not promptly buying more USA farm products.

China has once again failed to meet its end of the bargain, stymieing the ongoing trade talks with the United States.

In addition to opposing sharp-elbowed Chinese tech policies, the United States wants Beijing to buy more US products and to narrow America's trade deficit with China - a record $381 billion past year.

China's trade with the United States plunged last month as a tariff war battered exporters on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.

China has started preparing to buy farm products, including gauging the prices of US soybeans, but will not purchase large amounts until it sees concrete progress in the negotiations, a person familiar with the matter said Friday.

Mr Xi and Mr Trump agreed to restart trade talks between their countries at the meeting, and the U.S. president said he would hold off on imposing additional tariffs on Chinese imports.

There has been a precedent of China backtracking on its trade promises during negotiations.

"China's core concerns must be properly resolved, we believe that the two sides can take care of each other's legitimate concerns through dialogue as equals", said commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng.

Washington has already imposed 25% of tariffs on US$250 billion of Chinese goods and China has retaliated with tariff hikes on US$60 billion of USA goods. That investigation prompted the USA administration to impose punitive tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports, precipitating the current trade war.

China media reported that, when meeting with Xi, Trump had only expressed the hope that China would be buying American agricultural products on a large scale as part of the ceasefire. China has vowed not to give in on issues of principle nor under USA pressure.
