China says EU law on import duties lacks basis under WTO rules

BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Thursday that the European Union’s trade measures should respect international rules, after the European Parliament approved legislation to protect EU industries against excessively cheap imports from China.

The new EU law lacks a basis under World Trade Organization rules, China’s Commerce Ministry said in a statement on its website.
