Beijing Hopes US Will Treat Chinese Investments Fairly

China and Europe warn trade war could trigger global recession

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis receives a bouquet upon arrival at an airport in Beijing, China June 26, 2018.

US-China trade row: What has happened so far?

Mattis is expected to meet with a range of officials during his visit here, including USA diplomats and senior Chinese military leaders. The Pentagon has also protested what it says are cases of US pilots being injured by lasers, a claim that has been denied by China's foreign ministry.

To date, the USA has placed a 25% and 10% duty respectively on steel and aluminium imports, covering around US$48bn of imports, with most of these coming from allies such as Canada, the EU, Mexico, and South Korea. "China and the US will exchange opinions on bilateral and military relations".

Beijing then followed through in April with 178.6% antidumping duties on sorghum imports from the USA, although these were ended in May after trade negotiations with the US.

Mattis was handed a large bouquet of flowers as he walked off his plane in Beijing on Tuesday.

Lighthizer said that getting China to open its market to more us exports was significant, but that it was far more important for the United States to resolve issues with China such as forced technology transfers and cyber theft.

"I'm going there to have a conversation". "That's their policy", Mattis said. Such bilateral talks will alleviate tensions between the two countries and is better than blindly guessing the other's "strategic ambitions'".

The U.S., as the world's largest economy, may be the initial victor under such a regime, but an escalating battle still poses risks of a slowdown.

Earlier policymakers in China moved quickly to temper any potential impact on economic growth from Beijing's trade dispute with the United States.

"China has no intention or ambition to challenge U.S. global influence".

China and the European Union will exchange offers related to market access at an upcoming summit in July, Liu said Monday.

China claims Taiwan as its own and has never renounced the use of force to bring under its control what it sees as a wayward province. "It is critical both for the interests of the United States as well as for the integrity and proper functioning of the global economy that the Chinese cease these kinds of behaviors".

But the restrictions come at a time of rapidly declining Chinese investment in the United States.

"I believe that as long as both countries have this desire to meet each other halfway, there are no difficulties that can not be overcome", Lu said.

Defense officials believe China can exert crucial sway on North Korea, moving negotiations forward because Beijing also wants a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.

Graham Webster, a senior fellow with Yale Law School's Paul Tsai China Center, said a key question was whether Trump's tariff actions would lead Beijing to link economic issues and security cooperation. "That's their policy", Mattis said, raising the issue as one where there was some convergence in US and Chinese interests.

A senior USA defense official, speaking to reporters ahead of Mattis' trip, suggested that the United States saw room for some improvement in sanctions enforcement along China's border with North Korea.
