Trade War Deepens: China Blocks US Ship from Hong Kong

  • The ripples of brewing trade tension between the US and China have started to appear outside the realm of trade imposition on each other’s goods. In a recent development, the government of China has blocked the entry of US Navy ship in Hong Kong. The US assault ship, the USS Wasp, was to make a port call next month in the Chinese urban center. 

    The cancelation of port visit also means cancelation of meeting between the US and Chinese top naval commanders. According to the experts, this step will further worsen the already deteriorating relations between the world’s two biggest economies.
