Rio Tinto Ltd says iron ore price talks with China have been suspended due to the detention of company executive Stern Hu, despite claiming previously the Shanghai-based Australian citizen was not central to the negotiations.

“At this point in time we’re not negotiating,” Rio Tinto iron ore chief executive Sam Walsh told reporters after a business function in Perth on Friday.

“Remember we have our negotiators detained,” he said.
