China Halts Purchases of US Agricultural Products, Mulls Retroactive Tariffs - Commerce Ministry

Earlier, US media reported that Beijing had quietly asked state-owned enterprises to suspend further imports of US agricultural goods amid the ongoing trade war, and President Donald Trump's recent threat to slap 10 percent tariffs on another $300 billion in Chinese imports.

Chinese companies have stopped buying agricultural products made in the US, and Beijing is considering imposing tariffs on all US farm goods purchased after August 3, China's ministry of commerce announced late Monday, according to Reuters.

The ministry's statement comes on the heels of reports by Chinese media, including Xinhua, about possible new tariffs on US agricultural goods.
