China vows retaliation of ‘same proportion’ in response to any new US tariffs

Beijing will not hesitate to take further countermeasures in case Washington decides to impose a new round of tariff hikes against Chinese goods, with China’s ambassador to the US promising a swift and “proportional” response.

China’s Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai said that the new fares on 128 US goods that took effect on Monday were a direct and measured response only to the US increase of steel and aluminum tariffs – but not the planned hike of duties on other Chinese imports ordered by President Donald Trump.

“We will certainly take countermeasures of the same proportion and the same scale, same intensity,” Cui Tiankai said Tuesday according to China Global Television Network.
