French President Emmanuel Macron warns China against escalation in international trade wars

U.S. President Donald Trump is set to announce additional tariffs on China following an investigation into its trade policy and violation of U.S. intellectual property rights.

On Thursday, the office of French President Emmanuel Macron told his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, through a telephonic conversation, an escalation in tension in international trade would be harmful to all sides.

As a context to the conversation – as a follow up on a probe on violation of its intellectual property rights, U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce additional tariffs on Chinese imports later on Thursday.

“The president … stressed the importance of avoiding the rise of trade tensions which would be detrimental to all, while at the same time correcting, in a multilateral framework, the practices likely to create imbalances, in accordance with the commitments made in the framework of the G20,” said the office of the French president in a statement after the call.
