Chinese pull out of farm tour

In what some are calling a snub, a delegation from China pulled out of a tour of United States farms before visits in Nebraska and Montana.

But the New York Times cited anonymous sources who said the Chinese delegation canceled the farm visits only out of concern that it would become a “media circus” and falsely imply that Beijing was meddling in U.S. domestic politics.

High-level trade talks are to resume in early October.
