US-China Trade Talks Get Stuck Over Farm Purchases – Reports

Trade Talks Hit Bump as China Resists U.S. Demands on Agricultural Purchases

"Reopening China to US poultry will create new export opportunities for our poultry farmers and support thousands of workers employed by the US poultry industry", US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in a statement.

The stoppage originally occurred in January 2015 due to an outbreak of avian influenza, which led to a Chinese ban on all USA poultry and eggs.

China, the world's top pork consumer, will likely buy all types of US chicken, turkey and duck to offset the pork shortage, said Jim Sumner, president of the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council, an industry group.

Indian court rules in favor of Hindu temple on disputed land
The unanimous decision by five judges led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi disappointed some Muslims while Hindus rejoiced. The sect claims to have run the Ram temple for years before the erection of the Babri Masjid in the 16th century.

Last month, USA and Chinese negotiators announced a modest breakthrough. Big differences over China's technology policies were largely unaddressed and left for future negotiations. U.S. President Donald Trump said earlier he had not agreed to ease any levies.

But even that tentative "Phase 1" deal hasn't been officially signed as China presses the U.S.to roll back its tariffs. The Chinese Commerce Ministry said Thursday it still expected the USA to lift punitive tariffs on its imports, which Trump has sharply rejected. Last month, Trump announced on Twitter that he is working on a "phase one" trade agreement with China that is "60%" done, but has made no promises about completely removing tariffs.
