Kudlow says U.S. expects China to start purchasing crops very soon

China says US trade row can be resolved through mutual respect, says ministry spokesman

US, China negotiators resume trade war talks

US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed in Japan last month to another trade ceasefire, thanks to Trump's promise not to impose new tariffs on Chinese goods and to ease restrictions on Huawei.

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

Since the breakdown, China's state media has taken an increasingly nationalistic tone, putting out articles and commentaries blasting the United States and its tariffs.

"Mexico is doing well at the border, but China is disappointing us by not buying products from our great farmers as they said they will".

"They have not been buying the agricultural products from our great Farmers that they said they would", the president said on Twitter.

"We have noted Huawei and other Chinese entities are still on the USA export control list, we urge the U.S. to really fulfil its promises and immediately stop using state power to beat down Chinese companies", Gao said.

Following the Osaka summit, Trump announced that, in return for suspending a planned tariff increase on $300 billion in Chinese imports, Beijing had offered to buy "a tremendous amount of food and agriculture product". China bought 127,800 metric tons of US soybeans last week, the equivalent of about two cargoes and a 79% reduction from the previous week.

Trump and Xi agreed to restart negotiations that had broken down in May after 11 rounds of talks.

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

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told reporters the talks "went constructively" but it was "too soon for details".
