Charts of the Day: Beijing and Washington Frame Trade War Talks Differently
The Trump-Xi meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit over the weekend has brought a temporary trade truce between the world’s two largest economies. While Beijing and Washington both called the meeting “highly successful,” the two governments have described the results quite differently in their respective statements.
To provide you with a more nuanced understanding of the Sunday meeting and the progress of trade talks, Caixin has put together a side-by-side comparison of the two statements, as well as the joint statement released in May following Vice Premier Liu He’s round of negotiations with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Washington.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasized the two sides’ consensus to work towards dismantling tariffs. However, it did not mention the 90-day deadline to reach a trade deal set by the Trump administration.
