On Friday, the US president, Donald Trump announced the introduction of new taxes by $ 500 billion, which in fact will affect the whole of China's imports. But after two days, and all the official China representative office or the Ministry of Commerce of China, nor the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not comment on what is happening.
In addition, the Chinese media did not cover the potential threat that is not written or written, does not say a single word about it. In addition, the views published by People's Daily on Saturday, had no mention of the new tariffs.
This lull is unusual to China, but we note that to new comments and threats Trump authorities insisted that the press did not use the term "trade war", in order not to spread panic.
Recall, just over a month ago, when the government Trump reported rates in the amount of 50 billion, China's Ministry of Commerce immediately reported that the United States are waiting for responses.
Later, when the White House announced new tariffs on other goods worth 200 billion Celestial said the state quantitative and qualitative countermeasures will be taken.
That is, the response has been, and was at the same moment, and now the threat has remained unanswered. Note, it was informal, but still logically had to get an answer.
Reporters sent a request to the Ministry of Trade and Foreign Affairs of China, but so far no response.
Analysts say that China's government has not yet possible attempts to respond to the threat of Trump merely because the latter can simply bluff and not realize the threat.
Also, some experts believe that the way Trump is trying to divert attention away from the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has come under a barrage of criticism.
