Donald Trump asks China to lift all US agricultural tariffs

US President Donald Trump has asked China to immediately "lift" all tariffs on US agricultural products.

In a tweet, the president said he had made the request because "we are moving well with trade discussions."

Mr. Trump postponed the customs duties scheduled for March 1 on Chinese goods because of progress in the talks.

Has always complained about the country's business practices, and imposed customs duties of more than 250 billion dollars on Chinese goods.

China responded similarly, setting a tariff on one hundred ten billion dollars of US products and accusing the United States of launching "the biggest trade war in economic history."
Last month, Trump said the two countries were "very, very close" to signing a new trade deal, saying they had "made significant progress" following the Washington summit.

While tariffs on imports of Chinese goods were due to come into effect from 1% to 25% on March 1, the United States now plans to hold a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Marmg-Lago resort in Trump, Florida.
The commercial war has raised fears in the financial markets of the impact on the global economy.

The International Monetary Fund warned that a trade war could risk making the world a "poorer and more dangerous place" in its assessment of global growth last October.
