At the 13th G20 Summit in Argentina, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Trump reached an agreement on December 1. It was decided there would be a 90-day pause before fresh tariffs were imposed. The two sides agreed to step up negotiations during the truce to remove all additional tariffs and reach a win-win deal.
In May, the Trump administration officially announced it would withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, pressurizing Iran to revise the pact and make more concessions. The U.S. move was denounced by the international community and Iran refused to make further concessions.
