The Office of the United States Trade Representative has said in a statement that Washington will delay tariffs on Chinese products including cell phones, laptops and video games until 15 December, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

The list of products on which tariffs will put off until December include "computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors, and certain items of footwear and clothing", the USTR said in a statement.

The statement comes after US President Donald Trump accused China of currency manipulation and unfair trade practices that effectively steal from US businesses and farmers, signalling that additional tariffs may be in store to overcome the yuan's devaluation.
