What hope for markets in the US-China trade talks?

The US and its allies periodically send planes and warships near the Paracel Islands an area claimed by China

There are growing concerns that the trade war could escalate into a broader conflict between the USA and China, as top Trump administration officials have attacked China on issues ranging from alleged human rights abuses to influence operations in the US.

U.S. Undersecretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney, center, who is part of U.S. trade delegation leaves from a hotel for a second day of meetings with Chinese officials in Beijing, China, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019.

President Trump continues to be optimistic, however, tweeting the talks are going very well.

President Trump echoed his sentiment, chiming in on Twitter.

For their part, Chinese officials are unhappy with USA curbs on exports of "dual use" technology with possible military applications. Larry Kudlow, and Assistant to the President for Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro.

Leaked photographs posted on the South China Morning Post's website showed U.S. officials applauding Liu's appearance, including the U.S. delegation leader, Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Jeffrey Gerrish. Steven Winberg, assistant secretary for fossil energy, has told reporters that discussions will be extended for another day.

He declined to provide more details.

Washington has been clamouring for an end to the alleged forced transfer - and even theft - of American technology, as well as steep government subsidies for Chinese companies. This meeting was previously unscheduled, signaling the two sides could be coming together on key issues.

Trade talks in Beijing between the world's two biggest economies entered a third day on Wednesday, amid signs of progress on issues including purchases of USA farm and energy commodities and increased US access to China's markets.

London Heathrow airport: Drone spotted as flights grounded
The exclusion zone around airports is now one kilometre (half a mile) and this will be extended to five kilometres. Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: "We are in contact with Heathrow Airport concerning the drone sighting.

China had sent its naval vessel to verify and warn it, he said. "That's probably the easiest one to solve", he said.

Since March, the USA has slapped tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods, while China has placed a series of retaliatory tariffs on US goods totaling $110 billion.

He said the United States ship sailed through the area without the permission from the Chinese side.

"Talks with China are going very well!" president Trump declared Tuesday, a day after the in-person talks in Beijing began with the participation of vice premier Liu and the US trade delegation.

But Bonnie Glaser, a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the timing of the North Korean leader's arrival could be coincidental.

Asked for his reaction on the American ship sailing through the Paracel islands which China claims Xisha islands, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Beijing has lodged strong protest to the USA on this. "China has the good faith, on the basis of mutual respect and equality, to resolve the bilateral trade frictions". "And we're doing very well".

China's foreign ministry also made a similar assessment.

The warship, he said, had violated Chinese and global law, infringed on Chinese sovereignty and undermined peace and stability.

The United States periodically sends planes and warships through the area to signal to Beijing its right under global law to pass through the waters.
