China’s State Council has published a white paper lambasting Washington for its “consistently troublesome” trade actions as the White House gets ready to cut the ribbon on its latest round of tariffs.
The 36,000-word document, named “Facts on China-US Economic and Trade Friction and China’s Position,” stated that the Trump administration had “abandoned the systems of consultation and discussion,” Caixin reported.
“Since the new US government took office under the slogan of ‘America First’ in 2017, we have abandoned the basic norms of international exchanges such as mutual respect and equal consultation, and implemented unilateralism, protectionism and economic hegemony,” the white paper is quoted as saying.
“Many countries and regions, but especially China, have suffered from false accusations, and have suffered economic intimidation in the form of increasing tariffs and other means, in order to put extreme pressure and impose others’ interests on China.”
