United States curbs China nuclear exports as Trump warns Americans not 'stupid'

U.S. National Security Advisor Bolton answers questions during news conference in the White House briefing room in Washington

Mnuchin could issue a different finding.

Mnuchin would not say what the report would reveal, but in the past Treasury has placed China on a watch-list but said it did not meet the requirements to be labeled a currency manipulator.

China's large trade surplus with the United States has always been a sore point with Washington and is at the center of an increasing bitter dispute between the world's two biggest economies.

The Treasury Department's congressionally mandated twice-a-year report assessing whether trade partners are manipulating their currencies is on track for release next week, the people said.

Future trade flows also appear to be weakening, but it is uncertain "whether softening export orders are the first tangible evidence of US-China trade friction at the macro level that could amplify an ongoing slowdown", S&P said.

Analysts said last month's strong export growth - which might indicate USA tariffs are not biting much yet - is unlikely to be sustained.

In an interview with Bloomberg News on Thursday, Mnuchin declined to comment on the report. "And that we're going to be make sure we don't have forced joint transfers and forced transfer of technology".

The Chinese yuan has lost almost 10 per cent of its value against the dollar this year. The offshore rate lost 0.57 percent.

The U.S. Treasury chief and People's Bank of China Governor Yi Gang extensively discussed currency issues on the sidelines of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank annual meetings on the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

Worries about the increased tariffs the two sides have imposed on each other's goods have contributed to this week's dizzying volatility in financial markets.

"He doesn't feel the need to attack at all", Mnuchin said.

Beginning previous year, the National Security Council led a review of China's efforts to obtain nuclear material, equipment and advanced technology from US companies, government officials said in a conference call with reporters on October 11.

The Chinese currency has been falling in value against the dollar in recent months, raising concerns that China is devaluing its currency as a way to make Chinese goods more competitive against US products.

Washington, Europe and other trading partners complain those violate Beijing's free-trade commitments and USA officials worry they might erode American industrial leadership.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence also accused Beijing last week of seeking to interfere in the U.S. midterm elections to be held next month.

The jibe hits at a sensitive area for the United States and other Western nations long concerned with protecting intellectual property and preventing improper technology transfer to China lest Beijing gain a competitive advantage.

Mnuchin also told Reuters in an interview that China needs to identify concrete "action items" to rebalance the two countries' trade relationship before talks to resolve their disputes can resume. -China trade talks and expressed his concerns about the yuan's recent weakness.

Should Mnuchin choose to follow his staff's advice about the yuan, he may face push-back within the White House.

The US already carefully reviews nuclear exports through the Energy Department's so-called Part 810 authorizations, which verify if the technology goes to peaceful use and will not be sent to a third country.
