Macron hopes China-US trade deal will not bring new US-EU tensions

PARIS, Jan 15 (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday that he hoped a new agreement between China and the United States on trade will not lead to new tensions between the United States and Europe.

“I hope it is a good dynamic. But I would not want this Chinese-American rapprochement to be an excuse to reopen a new chapter of U.S.-European tensions,” Macron told reporters.

China has pledged to buy almost $80 billion of additional manufactured goods from the United States over the next two years as part of a trade war truce, according to a source. (Reporting by Michel Rose Writing by Geert De Clercq; Editing by Alison Williams)
