WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Brazil’s Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said on Monday that Brazil will not reduce its trade with China under the government of far-right President Jair Bolsonaro.

Guedes and Bolsonaro are in the United States to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump, who has fought a trade spat with China involving multiple rounds of tariffs.
