China disputes latest US tariffs at World Trade Organization
Updated : August 28, 2018 07:41 AM IST
The Chinese government on Monday formally requested "dispute consultations" with the United States over the Trump administration's imposition of $16 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods last week.
Its request to the World Trade Organization opens a 60-day period for the two countries to hold talks.
China already is holding talks with the US about its previous tariffs on both Chinese steel and aluminum products and over alleged Chinese violations of US intellectual property protections.
