President Donald Trump does not rule out postponement of duty increases on Chinese goods


February 20, Fineko/abc.az. US President Donald Trump did not deny the opportunity to postpone the increase in duties on Chinese goods.

The American leader made a relevant statement in front of journalists in the White House, answering the question whether he plans to postpone the deadline for raising duties on Chinese products, which expires on 1 March.

"I can't tell you the exact dates, it's not a magical date, because a lot of things are happening. Let's see what happens... Negotiations are going very well. China does not want the US to raise duties, so Beijing "is trying to act faster to prevent this from happening," the president said.

According to Trump, the U.S. and China "are conducting very difficult negotiations". As a result of talks, Beijing will buy a lot of agricultural products from Washington, "much more than anyone could think".
