US President Donald Trump complained that China hasn't increased its purchases of American farm products as promised by Chinese President Xi Jinping when they met at the Group of 20 summit last month.

President Xi and President Trump agreed to restart trade talks between their countries at the meeting, and the US president said he would hold off on imposing additional tariffs on Chinese imports.



President Trump also claimed President Xi had agreed that China would buy large amounts of US agricultural goods. But data released Thursday by the US Department of Agriculture indicate that China actually slowed its purchases.



China bought 127,800 tonnes of American soybeans, the equivalent of about two cargoes and a 79 per cent reduction from the previous week. Similarly, China bought just 76 tons of American pork, compared to 10,400 tons in June.
