China warns its citizens: Travel to US carries high-cost risks

In meetings in Brussels, Berlin and Beijing, senior Chinese officials, including vice-premier Liu He and top diplomat Wang Yi, have proposed an alliance between the two economic powers and offered to open more of the Chinese market in a gesture of goodwill.

Chinese media has promoted the message that the European Union is on China's side, officials said, putting the bloc in a delicate position.

The advisories, largely unreported in the US and Chinese media, have circulated as friction over trade issues has risen between the two nations in recent months.

But when they realized the 12-hour time advantage the Asian country has over the U.S., they backed down a bit, according to a report. "They have been treating us very badly for many, many years and that's why we were at a big disadvantage with the WTO, and we're not planning anything now, but if they don't treat us properly, we will be doing something".

As the world's most powerful economy, the United States plays a vital role in global economic and trade rule-setting and it is always able to find seemingly plausible reasons for its initiative targeting China.

"China and European countries are natural partners", it said.

China's Foreign Ministry, when asked on Tuesday if the timing of the alert was politically motivated, said summer was the high season for Chinese going to the United States and that its embassies had an obligation to warn citizens about potential risks overseas.

An outright trade war with the United States could hit China's export machine, with recent data pointing to fatigue as credit expansion slowed and domestic demand looked to be softening.

China says it's "fully prepared" for a trade war with the United States if it kicks off in earnest on Friday.

Travel and Leisure magazine's report on the alert, meanwhile, noted that China has been warning its citizens about gun violence in the US for years.

"We agree with nearly all the complaints the USA has against China, it's just we don't agree with how the United States is handling it", another diplomat said.

The Trump administration's tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports are due to go into effect at 12.01 am eastern time on Friday (0401 GMT Friday), which is just after midday on Friday Beijing time.

"While the Trump administration is anxious about gains and losses, Chinese people have unfaltering confidence in China's future".

China's tactics were specifically created to hurt Trump supporters, he said.

Both sides have threatened to impose similarly sized tariffs on 6 July but because of the 12-hour time difference, the Chinese tariffs on U.S. imports ranging from soybean to stainless steel pipes will take effect earlier.

"Whenever the train has left the station we are allowed to enter the platform", a Beijing-based European executive said.

"China will not bow down in the face of threats and blackmail and will not falter from its determination to defend free trade and the multilateral system". "It's unlikely to mark a systemic change".
