Malmstrom: US, China trade moves irresponsible

European Union Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom (pictured) criticized the United States and China on Thursday, stating that their behavior on trade was "irresponsible."

This not the first time Malmstrom slammed the trade negotiations between the two world powers. On Tuesday, the EU official described the latest round of tariffs imposed by the United States on Chinese imports as "an unfortunate escalation."

Meanwhile, commenting on the EU's own trade talks with Washington last week, Malmstrom noted that a deal addressing tariffs and the current trade dispute is still "a long way off."
