China To Hit Back After US Proposes Fresh $200bn In Tariffs

China accused the United States of bullying and warned that it would hit back after the Trump administration raised the stakes in their trade dispute, threatening 10% tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods.

On Wednesday, China's commerce ministry said that it was "shocked" and would complain to the World Trade Organisation, but it did not immediately say how it would retaliate. In a statement, it called the US actions "completely unacceptable".

The foreign ministry described Washington's threats as "typical bullying" and said that China needed to counter-attack to protect its interests.
