China Vows To Respond To US Trade War Threats


The foreign ministry said on Monday, China will respond if the United States takes any new steps on trade. This after President Donald Trump warned he was ready to slap tariffs on virtually all Chinese imports into the United States. On Friday, Trump said he was ready to levy additional taxes on practically all Chinese imports. This threatens duties on $267 billion of goods over and above planned tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese products. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular briefing, when asked about Trump’s warning, “If the U.S. side obstinately clings to its course and takes any new tariff measures against China, then the Chinese side will inevitably take countermeasures to resolutely protect our legitimate rights."
