China says it's willing to work together with the US to resolve the year-long trade dispute between the two countries. The foreign ministry expressed optimism as trade negotiations resumed in Beijing. A delegation of US officials including the deputy US trade representative, Jeffrey Gerrish, are holding the first bilateral negotiations since US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day truce in their trade war last month. Trump had initially imposed import tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese goods to pressure Beijing to change its practices on issues ranging from state subsidies to hacking. China retaliated with tariffs of its own. Markets in Asia posted gains hoping for progress in the talks.

How is CHINA challenging the AMERICAN EMPIRE? US and China resume trade negotiations 5 months ago   15:01

America is the 20th and 21st century’s empire. There is no region on the planet where America has not the strongest military presence, with bases on the most remote islands of the Pacific. This hegemony has created a landscape where no other country dares to attack American army. But this ‘Pax Americana’ could stop one day... at least on the Indian Ocean.
Since years, China has been building alliances with neighbouring countries to create a string of military bases. From South China Sea to Africa and Middle East, China is expanding their presence. Why? They need to guarantee their trade routes. They cannot take the risk of other countries like India blocking their supply of raw materials. This is why they need to have the military supremacy on this region. This is the so-called ‘String of Pearls’ project, A.K.A. the Maritime Belt and Road Initiative.
And, as you can imagine, this is one of Washington’s main concerns. Why? Why is this a threat to America? In this video, we will answer to those questions.
