U.S.-China trade talks back on track after G20

The United States and China agreed on Saturday to restart trade talks and that Washington would hold off on imposing new tariffs on Chinese exports, signaling a pause in the trade hostilities between the world's two largest economies.

Lauren Anthony reports.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "We are going to continue the negotiation.

We agree that I would not be putting tariffs on the $325 billion dollars, that I would have the ability to put on if I wanted." A step forward in the long-running trade war between the U.S. and China.

President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping sat for talks on their ongoing friction on Saturday (June 29).

Where Washington agreed not to slap a fresh round of tarrifs on exports from China.

President Trump also added that U.S. companies can sell to Chinese tech giant Huawei.

A firm that's become a target for authorities.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "We mentioned Huawei, I said we have to save that till the very end, we'll have to see." WHITE FLASH "One of the things I will allow however is, a lot of people are surprised, we send and we sell to Huawei a tremendous amount of product that go into the various things that they make, and I said that, that's okay that we will keep selling those products." Trump said although he won't be adding a fresh round of levies, he would not lift existing import tarriffs.

In a statement, China's foreign ministry said Xi told Trump he hoped the U.S. could treat Chinese companies fairly.

Talks between the two collapsed over a month ago.

After Washington accused Beijing of pulling back on reform pledges.

This new truce has offered relief from a nearly year-long trade standoff.

In which the countries have placed tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's imports.

Disrupting supply lines, rocking markets and dragging on global economic growth.

No timeline has yet been given on what will likely be a complex deal.

Protest against China slave camps, 'genocide' of Uyghurs outside UN office

A protest was organised against China outside the United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland. The 3-day long demonstration, consisting of a photo exhibition, was organised by a group called the World Uyghur Congress. It was titled 'Made In China = Uyghur Forced Labour'. The protestors accused the Chinese government of forcing the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority group in the country's northwest Xinjiang province, into forced labour and even attempting a genocide. Beijing has allegedly been trying to stamp out the community's religious and cultural identity in order to assimilate it more fully into the majority Han Chinese community. Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress, sought international pressure on China to stop the Uyghurs' persecution and boycott by international companies to prevent forced labour.
