 Asian stocks closed lower due to uncertainty over trade relations

East Asian stocks closed negative trading on Wednesday as uncertainty over US-China trade relations looms. Yesterday, US President Donald Trump said he expected a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit by the end of June. If the meeting did not take place, the US president threatened to impose more tariffs on Chinese goods worth 300 billion dollars.

Meanwhile, the director of the US Economic Council Larry Kudlow said on Tuesday that Washington wants to "start where the negotiations stopped" last month in negotiations on a possible trade deal with China. Speaking to CNBC, Kudlo noted that "much progress has been made" in the talks and that 90% of the deal was made before "China starts to retreat."
