Peter Navarro, quoted by the Washington Post, said on Tuesday that China may have played down US President Donald Trump's decision on trade as well as the threat of a return to tariffs.
Last Friday, the US president announced a 25 percent tariff on US imports from China with $ 50 billion, with the threat of further tariffs if Beijing moves to take any steps to respond to the decision.
But Beijing ignored the US threat to reveal 25 percent tariffs on US goods worth 34 billion dollars hours after Trump's decision.
In a new escalation of the trade crisis among the world's biggest economists, Trump instructed the trade representative to set a new list of 10 percent customs duties on Chinese goods worth 200 billion dollars.
A step considered by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce as a violation of previous negotiations between the two countries and contrary to agreements already reached.
"Our telephone lines are open, it has always been," said Navarro, known for his hard-line approach to China, who is ready to hold talks to resolve the trade dispute with Beijing.
Trump's trade adviser denied any idea that the trade crisis would hurt the larger relationship with China.
He explained that the United States and China are facing a trade dispute nothing more since that and nothing less.
"President Trump has a good relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping."
