China vows fast response to US tariffs
Spokesman Geng Shuang made the remarks at a daily news briefing in response to the reports that the US is scheduled to release an updated list of tariffs targeting $50 billion worth of Chinese imports. While reiterating Beijing`s stance of settling disputes through dialogue, Geng said that the results of the China-US trade talks would be void if Washington forges ahead with trade sanctions including tariffs.
The US said its tariffs on Chinese goods came in response to what it categorised as theft of intellectual property. Image source: Reuters
