Trump admitted the loss of interest to the trade deal with China

The President of the United States Donald trump admitted that a trade deal with China, which was concluded only the first three parts, now has lost its value.

"Speaking of China, trade deal means less to me now than it was before I signed," - he said to journalists on Friday.

Previously, trump said, that he had "much more in the head", in response to the question about the prospects of the discussion of the second phase of the agreements.

Chinese foreign Ministry on 16 July expressed the hope that the deal can still be implemented.

The US and China on 15 January signed the first part of the trade agreement, in which Washington kept the fee at the rate of 25% on Chinese goods in the amount of about $ 250 billion, along with 7.5% for goods with a volume of $ 120 billion. The agreement stipulates that China will buy American industrial goods with $ 75 billion, energy at $ 50 billion, agricultural products at $ 40 billion, another 35-40 billion dollars in the next two years, China will have to spend on services. So the US expects to bring the imbalance in trade with China, which totaled hundreds of billions of dollars, for a "fair" indicator.

Officially, Beijing and Washington continue to insist on the willingness to fulfill obligations under trade agreements, however, the Chinese side accused the USA that they have a policy of protectionism and thereby hinder the implementation of the transaction, and the United States started the investigation of how right was the policy of Beijing in the fight against coronavirus, and do not exclude serious consequences if China wine is proven. China denied the allegations and said his actions coronavirus was transparent.
