KUALA LUMPUR:The Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is expected to discuss the US-China trade war at the United Nation meeting this week.
The trade war between China and USA has become sharper since USA imposed tariffs on Chinese goods mounting to US$200 billion (RM827 billion).
China is poised to retaliate with tariffs on US$60 billion in US goods, a move that President Donald Trump has said would spur new duties on another US$267 billion in Chinese imports, according to a report by Malay Mail.
Early today, Malaysia Prime Minister, criticised US President Donald Trump, saying that his views are not consistent.
“He (Donald Trump) changes his views in a manner of hours,” Bloomberg quoted Dr Mahathir as saying during an event at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, referring to Trump.
“Dealing with people who are not consistent is a big problem.
“One has to learn to live with China,” Dr Mahathir said.
