US ‘just a trade bully’

Herald Sun - - WORLD -

THE United States has started a trade war and China will de­fend it­self, Chi­nese Vice Min­is­ter of Com­merce Wang Shouwen says.

He has urged the US to “take the gun” of tar­iffs away to smooth the way for talks.

“The mea­sures taken are against the in­ter­ests of China, they are against the in­ter­ests of US busi­nesses, con­sumers, work­ers and farm­ers,” Mr Wang said.

“They are ham­per­ing global eco­nomic growth. They are just a trade bully.”
