- Story Text:Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on Tuesday (November 6) warned that the continued Sino-American trade dispute was undermining the world economy.
Mahathir told Japanese businessmen at a gathering at the Tokyo Chamber of Commerce that the United States and China should understand that trade war does not solve "any problem".
China and the United States are currently locked in a trade war, though both countries have taken steps to cool the temperature ahead of an expected meeting between the U.S. and Chinese presidents on the sidelines of the G20 summit starting later this month in Argentina.
