China presses Washington for tariff cut in trade deal
BEIJING (AP) — China pressed Washington on Thursday to roll back punitive tariffs in a tentative trade deal.
A tariff cut is an “important condition” for the agreement that is part of talks on ending a costly trade war, said Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng.
Beijing said last week American negotiators agreed to roll back penalties imposed in September on $112 billion of Chinese imports if an agreement goes ahead.
