In addition to the USA, the European Union, Japan, Germany and Canada have all expressed concern about China's behaviour on IP theft.

Despite Trump's previous comments, officials at the briefing repeatedly rebuffed any attempt by reporters to connect the possible investigation to the North Korea situation. They said that US companies had long suffered because of Chinese intellectual property violations, and that they expected Congress and the business community to support the measure.

"At present, relevant parties should exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that would escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula", Xi said, according to the statement provided by China's government. "If China helps us, I feel a lot different towards trade".

"President Trump and President Xi agreed North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behavior", the statement said.

"Americans are among the most innovative", said one official. They added that the trade measure would be carried out under the rules of worldwide law and would not trigger greater conflict with China.

Such thefts not only damage American companies, but also pose a threat to the United States national security, the second official said.

"If Americans continue to have their best technology and intellectual property stolen, or forcibly transferred offshore, the United States will find it hard to maintain its current technology leadership position and to remain one of the world's most innovative economies".

Michael Wessel, a commissioner on the U.S.

USTR argues Beijing uses a range of practices to force USA companies to transfer IP, such as by granting regulatory approvals to drug makers that shift production to China or requiring that the designs of foreign products be replicable in China.

"This is simply not fair", said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The administration is likely eager to make progress on trade, one of Trump's biggest campaign issues, after a recent series of legislative setbacks, trade experts said. The provision has fallen into disuse since the mid-1990s after the creation of the World Trade Organization. Meanwhile, 100 days of trade talks with the Chinese carried out in past months resulted in a few trade gains but not the ambitious changes the administration had hoped for.

Used frequently during the Reagan administration in the 1980s, the law allows the U.S. president to impose tariffs and other measures to force open export markets.

It was not clear how much detail Trump would provide in his announcement, Politico said, but added that administration officials expected US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to open a probe. -China trading relationship. But analysts have cautioned that Trump faces a huge challenge in his desire to significantly reduce the USA trade deficit with China, which past year stood at more than $300 billion.

The investigation is being ordered under US Trade Act of 1974, which officials said permits the USTR to investigate acts, policies or practices of a foreign country to determine whether they are indeed unreasonable or discriminatory that burden or otherwise restrict US commerce.

Meanwhile, China has continued to maintain barriers that prevent US companies from accessing its market, while adding new requirements for USA companies to share technology with the Chinese state, like a recent cybersecurity law. Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said at the time that she wanted to "personally thank" the Chinese delegation. "And I think China will do a lot more". "It's not going to continue like that", he said.
