CHINA/EU/G20/TRADE WAR/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “European Union leaders warned on Friday [6-28-19] against the damage that escalating U.S.-China trade friction was inflicting on the global economy, as the Group of 20 economies began a two-day summit in Japan’s western city of Osaka. The annual G20 summit kicked off amid heightened global anxiety over a U.S.-China trade war and escalating tension over Iran’s nuclear commitments that threatened to overshadow talks on other issues such as climate and the digital economy. All eyes are on a high-stakes meeting between Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the G20 and whether the U.S. president will carry out his threat of additional tariffs on Chinese goods…Juncker said the European Union was working closely with China, Japan, the United States and others to reform the World Trade Organization and create a level playing field.”
