China suspends US movie imports


China has suspended imports of American films, US Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez said here today, as he urged the mainland to lift a tight quota on foreign movies.

China allows just 20 foreign films to be shown in the country's cinemas each year but it was not immediately known whether the halt on screenings was due to that number already being reached.

'There has been a suspension,' Gutierrez told reporters, confirming a US media report that Hollywood films had been mysteriously blocked.

Gutierrez, speaking at the sidelines of top-level economic talks between the two nations during which trade tensions have been exposed, said suspensions had happened previously.
