Trump Administration Blindsides Chinese As Trade Talks Start

A high-ranking Chinese delegation has arrived in Washington for crucial talks aimed at ending the trade war between the US and China. But the delegation, led by China’s top economic expert, was blind-sided by formal US charges against Huawei, one of the country’s leading tech firms. There was immediate concern that the charges filed against Huawei �� two criminal indictments charging theft of intellectual property from a US firm and violating sanctions against Iran – could scupper progress in the trade talks. The negotiators have until March 1 to reach an agreement. If that deadline is not met, President Trump has threatened to escalate the trade war by imposing 25% tariffs on $250 billion worth of goods.
