‘US won't back down!’ Pence THREATENS China with all-out cold WAR

США пригрозили Китаю холодной войной если страна не пойдет на уступки

The United States was demanding that the Chinese come up with a clear offer before negotiations on a trade deal could start, while Beijing had been reluctant, seeking talks ahead of making any firm proposals.

Chinese negotiators will arrive in Washington "shortly" with the aim of ironing out an informal deal, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Tuesday at a panel event in Washington, though he did not specify an exact time frame for a meeting.

The United States has consistently sought concessions from China on intellectual property and technology, as well as tariffs on imports of USA goods. It was unclear if the response contained concessions that would satisfy Trump's demands for change.

The remarks came ahead of the upcoming meeting between US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at a Group of 20 summit slated for November 30.

"China has long agreed to make concessions: import as many USA goods as possible and greatly relax local market access for US companies".

In an interview with Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin in which Pence focused on the White House's Indo-Pacific policy, the vice president said his trip to the region "is meant to show the United States has no intention of ceding influence or control" to Beijing.

A U.S. team led by Treasury Under Secretary David Malpass discussed trade issues with a Chinese team via videoconference on Tuesday, a U.S. Treasury spokesperson said on Wednesday.

While Li acknowledged that China and the USA had disputes in areas other than trade, he said those disagreements could also be contained with dialogue.

‘Jack Reacher’ TV Series In the Works
After two rounds playing the ex-military cop Jack Reacher on the big screen, Tom Cruise is officially out of the franchise. With that in mind, he will not be recruited for a reboot of the series that will come in television series form.

The phone discussion followed a call between Trump and Xi two weeks ago - the first publicly disclosed call in six months.

The opening bid falls short of numerous core demands the White House has repeatedly detailed as must-haves in trade talks with Beijing, including addressing technology transfers and intellectual property theft, according to one of the people briefed.

The two nations have levied several rounds of tariffs on each others' goods, and tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports are due to rise to 25 percent in January in the absence of a breakthrough in negotiations.

At the end of the day, the only way the United States is likely to hit the breaks on its stance toward China is if "the voices of the U.S. big businesses become rowdy enough on the problems that the tariffs are causing", according to Woodward.

In that case, if the Chinese side does not make concessions, the United States is ready to strengthen political and economic pressure on Beijing.

Mr Pence said the only way China could avoid an all-out cold war was to "fundamentally change its behaviour".

Vice-President Mike Pence told The Washington Post newspaper the US could make deals with China at the G-20 but Beijing must offer concessions on technology transfer, theft of intellectual property and other issues. Both sides have been working toward a path to end the escalating trade war, which has left investors jittery over its impact on consumers and companies in the world's top two economies.
