BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s finance ministry said on Wednesday it will not fire the first shot on implementation of tariffs in a trade dispute with the United States.

The ministry, in a statement, said it would not implement its tariffs on U.S. goods set to take effect on July 6 before the United States imposes its tariffs on Chinese goods.
