Chinese Editorial Asks: What Is There to Discuss?

An editorial in China highlights how far the U.S. and China may be from a deal as it claims the U.S. side is insincere about a deal, would rather bully China with tariffs and is only saying a deal is possible to prop up the stock market.

After the 11th round of Sino-US consultations, the situation became very fast.

On China's side, after the talks, it reiterated its principled position, refuted the so-called "retrogression" accusations of the United States and made the three core concerns public for the first time.

In addition to this, China has recently been making a lot of noise and firepower. For example, the "international critical review" in the "news broadcast" which was completely screened online, such as the article "no challenge can stop China's progress" signed by "Guo Ji ping" in the "people's daily".

The position expressed here is very clear and firm-

If some people continue to ignore the principle of equality and mutual benefit and take chances that extreme pressure will work, then China has no other option but to reverse this path.

On the U.S. side, on the one hand, the stick of imposing tariffs is still waving. On the other hand, various U.S. industries and capital markets have reacted very strongly to the U.S. extreme pressure measures.
On this side, the U.S. side kept sounding out, saying "yes." China's economy is not very good. China is very eager to reach an economic and trade agreement with the United States.” After so many rounds of negotiations and contests, it is quite boring to say who is more eager to reach an agreement.

On the other side, Finance Minister Menuchin, one of the core members of the US negotiating team, said yes. "U.S.-China economic and trade talks are still in progress, and he is considering when to go to Beijing to continue the talks.”

According to a report by Reuters on the 14th, U.S. Treasury Department spokesman said U.S. Treasury Secretary Manuchin plans to travel to China for economic and trade talks in the near future.

However, China's Ministry of Commerce responded on the 16th that, "China does not know of any US plan to come to China.", this response is to extrapolate.

What do you think of the situation? Just a few words.
The editorial goes on to say the U.S. is talking about a deal to prop up its stock market, but that it intends to use tariffs to pressure China.
First of all, the U.S. side has now reiterated that it is better to continue discussions and emphasize that China's economy is not good. From the perspective of boosting confidence in the capital market in the United States, more consideration should be given to protecting the market.

So far, the US side has said that it wants to talk, but at the same time it has been playing tricks, undermining the atmosphere of negotiations.

U.S. local time signed an emergency administrative order on the 15th, banning U.S. enterprises from using telecommunications equipment produced by enterprises that pose risks to national security. The move is believed to be in preparation for banning U.S. companies from doing business with Chinese company Huawei.

It is not clear that the United States has any sincerity in substantive negotiations, but rather that the extreme pressure means are still extending.

In fact, when it comes to this time, China and the United States not only know what their attitudes are, but also the whole world can see it clearly.

Before the 11th round of negotiations, under the extreme pressure atmosphere created by the United States, China still went to the meeting under pressure to attend the "hongmen banquet".

The sincerity of negotiations released by this move cannot be increased any more.

However, China's sincerity has not received a positive response. I am afraid some people still feel that China is weak and can be bullied.

Since rational communication cannot dispel greed, there is only another way to reason.
Secondly, if the United States ignores China's public opinion, I'm afraid it won't get any effective response from China.

The U.S. side also said it would come to the talks and was also speculating on the topic of the G20 summit in Osaka.

Let me see, if the United States does not have any new substantive actions, then it will come in vain and talk in vain.

After the 11th round of negotiations, China raised three major concerns for the first time. In fact, it is also drawing its own "red line" to the United States and the world.

This is the bottom line, the position of the Chinese government and the public opinion of China.

If the customs duties are not abolished and the purchases are made in full accordance with the requirements of the United States, the text does not consider balance. Even if such an agreement is signed, can the Chinese people agree?

In the early days, our negotiation team worked day and night to promote the negotiation with great sincerity.

After so long hard work, the sincerity and goodwill shown by some people are regarded as weakness.

In this case, it is better to stop the negotiation completely and return to the normal working track.
While resisting the system, focus on doing your own thing.

Negotiations should be flexible, but compromise without principles cannot achieve win-win cooperation.

The United States is a good teacher and likes to educate us with facts.

After going through such a cognitive process, more and more people also see it more clearly:

"If you use the land to serve the Qin Dynasty, you can use the analogy of carrying faggots to put out a fire. The salary is not enough and the fire will not go out" —— Records of the Historian, Wei Aristocratic Family》

In addition, if anyone thinks that China is bluffing, it will only be another major miscalculation after the war to resist U.S. aggression and aid Korea.

When we said that if anyone crossed the 38th parallel, we would send troops.

Some people did not believe it, resulting in a miscarriage of justice. They were then educated by facts and returned to the 38th parallel.

Now we say that if anyone uses tariffs to bully others, we will definitely counter them.

Believe it or not?

This is like a precision instrument, triggering conditions will inevitably have consequences.

I read the "instructions" and believe it or not.

Some people say that the U.S. is stronger than us, and we suffer more than the U.S. in a trade war.

If we only calculate the economic accounts, this argument can be established. However, when a trade war starts in full swing, it is not only the economy that plays a role.

The shock brought by the sudden U.S. hostility to the public opinion in the United States can only be described as shock.

As for China's public opinion, or the thoughts of ordinary Chinese, it is easier to understand.

The Chinese love peace. In recent years, the business has done a little more. More and more people think that they hope to make money with kindness and hope that rich people can earn it together.

However, if anyone must have a hard time with us, I hope we can give in completely. Then these moderate Chinese will certainly try their best to turn themselves into the most respectable and difficult opponents they have met since 1776.

Now that the fight has started, let some people clearly realize that, the real cost of extreme pressure will far exceed the expected benefits.
