Amid the escalating trade war between the two trade giants, the U.S. challenged China's alleged practice of forced technology transfer in the WTO.

The upcoming G20 is viewed as a window of opportunity to reach a trade deal. Therefore, it is intriguing to find that the U.S. has suspended the legal proceedings over the IP case in the WTO on June 3, 2019.

The WTO Dispute Settlement Understanding states the complaining party may either request suspending the dispute settlement proceeding at any time for a period not exceeding 12 months or withdraw the complaint at any time.

It is not difficult to understand that a withdrawal of the dispute settlement proceedings means that the country has given up its complaint. Therefore, it often occurs when the complainant and the respondent have reached a settlement, or the respondent has changed the trade rules and regulations in question.

But, a suspension of the proceedings is different. A suspension of such a complaint can be seen as the first step of conciliatory action towards the respondent. It may also be interpreted as a tactic to achieve the most desirable result of its orchestrated efforts.

Then, does it signify that the U.S. is posing a conciliatory gesture prior to the possible negotiations at the G20 Summit?

Unfortunately! China must be more than naive!

Recalled that US DT met China President Xi in Beijing. US DT and his mate were given tip top quality hospitality only just to be showered with US-China Trade War!

Those who believe in conciliatoory would be a little off the sanity mark!

US will trash China out of shape again!

What is the big deal?
The Trump gangsters are merely suspending the complaint proceeding, there is no suggestion they are redrawing their reckless economic terrorism on China.
Xi must assume the Trump mobsters are permanently high on their zombie supplements, and deal with them accordingly.
