Chile posts September trade deficit of $122 mln

    SANTIAGO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Chile posted a trade deficit
 of $122 million in September, its second
consecutive negative trade gap this year, alongside a decline in
exports of copper, its principal product, the central bank
reported on Monday.  
    Copper exports softened by 17 percent over the same month in
2017 amid U.S.-China trade tensions that have affected the price
of the red metal.
    Chile is the world's top copper producer.
