Not in trade war with China: US Commerce Secy

Written by: Staff

Washington, Jan 5: A top Obama administration official has denied reports that United States was in a trade war with China.

Speaking in an interview, US Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said, "I don't think we're at a trade war."

According to Locke, the Department of Commerce along with the US Trade Representative's Office have been very vigorous and very vigilant in enforcing trade agreements with China.

"When we enter into agreements with China to allow Chinese goods to come into the United States and American goods to go into China, we do so on the promise that both sides will abide by various conditions," Locke said.

He further said, "It's unfair for American companies if Chinese companies are not abiding by those conditions."

"So we have increased our enforcement efforts and the sanctions against any and all goods and services coming from all countries, including China, that do not abide by the rules," he added.
