China accuses U.S. of 'trade bullyism' amid escalating dispute - Xinhua

BEIJING (Reuters) - China accused the United States of engaging in “trade bullyism” and intimidating other countries to submit to its will through measures such as tariffs, the official Xinhua news agency said on Monday, hours after the two sides imposed fresh duties on each other’s goods.

Xinhua, citing a white paper on the bilateral trade dispute published by China’s State Council, said China has sought to resolve the issue for the sake of the two parties’ common interest but that the new U.S. administration “has been contradicting itself and constantly challenging China,” leading to a rapid escalation of the dispute.
