China commits to trade talks amid 'groundless' Huawei suspicions

China's retaliatory tariffs since previous year have affected a host of USA commodities, including soybeans, corn, wheat, cotton, rice, and sorghum, as well as livestock products such as milk and pork.

Lu said U.S. politicians have spread rumours about Huawei without providing evidence.

"Negotiations can only continue on the basis of equality and mutual respect", Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng reportedly said.

The assistance is created to offset the estimated impact to American farmers from Chinese tariffs on American goods levied in retaliation for tariffs against Chinese products.

Trump's comments directly contradicted statements from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who said just hours earlier that Huawei and the trade issue were not linked.

"Very risky", said Trump, according to the BBC.

The developments came as financial markets fell again amid uncertainty over the fate of the trade talks, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping 286.14 points, or 1.1%.

As the trade dispute drags on, battering Chinese manufacturers and raising uncertainty for investors, Beijing has stepped up efforts to sway opinion in its favor both at home and overseas.

U.S. President Donald Trump also said on Thursday that U.S. complaints against Huawei might be resolved within the framework of a U.S.

The seeds of the current impasse were sowed when Chinese officials sought major changes to the draft text of a deal that the Trump administration says had been largely agreed.

The rest of the package includes $1.4 billion to purchase surplus food commodities from farmers and distribute them to US schools and food banks, and $100 million to help develop new export markets overseas.

The United States and China hardened their stances over Huawei on Thursday as Washington brushed aside claims of "bullying" and accused the Chinese tech giant of misrepresenting its ties to the Beijing government. The funding is meant to help farmers hurt by China's "unjustified trade retaliation", according to a White House press release.

According to the Peterson Institute for International Economics, China's retaliation so far has been selective and strategic, aiming at USA farmers and certain manufacturers. But right now a lot of companies are moving out of China because of the tax.

Following an event with the USDA (US Department of Agriculture), a reporter asked the President about the Huawei ban where Trump offered a vague and contradicting explanation around the 41-minute mark of the Source video.

With no further talks between Washington and Beijing scheduled, investors are nervously eyeing the prospect of an escalation in the tit-for-tat tariffs the two countries have slapped on each other's products.

The Trump administration is planning to slap tariffs up to 25 percent on the remaining list of Chinese imports, worth about $300 billion.

The United States alleged earlier this month that Beijing had confined significantly more than a million minority Muslims in "concentration camps". U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has filed the official paperwork to raise the tariffs, which could happen next month.

As for reimbursement over the trade war with China, farmers should not be extended favor over other industries.
