After Huawei Arrest, White House Sticks With Hard Line on Trade Talks
Saturday, 8 December 2018 04:20 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Top White House officials are continuing to take a hard line on U.S.-China trade talks, even after the arrest of a prominent Chinese tech executive that some fear could derail a trade truce between Washington and Beijing.

In an interview with VOA, White House trade and economic adviser Peter Navarro repeatedly refused to comment on the record about the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Huawei, whose company is at the heart of trade tensions between the U.S. and China.

But Navarro said that the Trump administration is "demanding not asking" that China make fundamental changes to its economy.

"What we're demanding is that China obey the rules of the international road and become a fair actor in international trade," Navarro said. "And surely that will require a restructuring of the model that's now predicated on state-owned enterprises, protectionism, (and) mercantilism."

Navarro remains optimistic that the U.S. and China will be able to reach an agreement before 90 days, after which U.S. President Donald Trump has said he will expand tariffs on Chinese imports. But he also said China has a "very long history" of not living up to its trade promises.

"This is going to be a tough negotiation," Navarro said. "The biggest problem will be the ability to actually verify things rather than just being strung along, because we've seen that movie before."
