  • US may use emergency law against China investments says Bloomberg

The U.S. Department of Defense said in a press release that Mattis will make his seventh trip to the Indo-Pacific region since he took office. The leaker either doesn't exist or know the subject very well.

"Tariffs are just a tool to deal with the fundamental, underlining issue, which is concern about China's rise as a technology power", Paul Triolo, practice head for geotechnology at the New York-based think-tank Eurasia Group, told DW.

World stock markets sank Monday on worries over the festering global trade war after US President Donald Trump threatened fresh tariffs on European cars, amid reports he is mulling curbs on Chinese investment in America.

The Nasdaq ended more than 2% lower, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 dropped more than 1.3%.

US stock futures fell more than 0.5 percent in Asian trade on Monday after the WSJ report.

China says it is within its rights to build up defences on islands in the South China Sea that it believes are its sovereign territory.

The Trump administration accuses Beijing of predatory practices in its attempt to supplant USA technological dominance, including cybertheft and forcing US companies to turn over technology in exchange for access to China's market. Mattis laid out plans for a less contentious, more open dialogue with Chinese leaders as he travels to Asia, less than a month after he slammed Beijing at an worldwide conference for its militarization of islands in the South China Sea.

LONDON, June 25 (Reuters) - World shares fell on Monday, dented by worries over a worsening trade dispute between the United States and other major economies, while oil prices gave up some of the gains made after major exporters agreed a modest production increase. Beijing is considered a key influencer on Pyongyang and Chinese President Xi Jinping said last week that China would "as always play a constructive role" in the process.

"There are serious structural concerns about Chinese practices that can not be resolved without trust between the negotiating partners" and that trust is eroding in the current confrontation, he told AFP.

"The high-speed rail sector is a pretty good example of where China worked with foreign companies and then used them as a kind of a stepping stone up the technology ladder", he explained. That could include holding goods in ports or hold up approvals.

The decision of the government to take a direct hand in corporate investment decisions is "a radical departure from the way we have engaged in economic governance", Chorzempa said.
