China Labels US’ Trade Tariffs Attitude Unacceptable, Vows Countermeasures

BEIJING – China said on Wednesday the United States’ decision to impose new tariffs on Chinese imports is “totally unacceptable,” and vowed to make necessary countermeasures.

“The behavior of the US is hurting China, hurting the world, and hurting itself,” a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said in a statement. “This irrational behavior is unpopular.”

The statement said China is “shocked” by the decision of US President Donald Trump to impose additional 10-percent tariffs on products imported from China worth $200 billion.

The Asian giant will also file a new complaint to the World Trade Organization against the unilateral conduct of the United States.

In order to defend the interests of the country, the Chinese government “will, as always, have to make the necessary counter-measures,” the text added.

China also called on the international community to work together “to safeguard the rules of free trade and the multilateral trading system and jointly oppose trade hegemonism.”

Washington announced the imposition of the latest tariffs on Tuesday night local time, a few days after June 6 when the trade war between the world’s two economic powers intensified.

The US levied the first package of tariffs on Chinese imports worth $34 billion, to which China responded almost immediately by imposing a similar tax measure on US imports, especially on products from the agricultural sector.
