Donald Trump Welcomes China Easing  Export Tariffs as 'Big Move'

Beijing spared some US products from tariffs in a move seen as an olive branch ahead of the talks between Top US and Chinese negotiators.

Washington: US President Donald Trump on Wednesday welcomed China's decision to exempt some US exports from tariff increases.

"It was a big move," Trump told reporters of the decision. Top US and Chinese negotiators are due to resume talks in Washington next month after a summer of sharp deteriorations in US-China trade ties.

Beijing spared some US products from tariffs in a move seen as an olive branch ahead of the talks, but high-profile goods like soybeans and pork continue to face higher duties.
