ASEAN summit: Mega trade deal delayed

Why plans to finalise what could be the world's largest trade bloc at the ASEAN summit have hit the buffers.

by

    Asian leaders at a summit in Thailand have delayed signing what would have become the world's biggest trading bloc.

    A free trade agreement between 16 countries was to offset the US-China trade war.

    But finalising it has now been put off until next year.

    Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler reports from Bangkok.
