China’s Ministry of Commerce on Thursday urged the United States to correct its use of tariffs, and vo

wed to take necessary countermeasures if the US’ new tariff plan targeting $300 billion in Chinese imports takes effect.

The US government’s bullying behavior and maximum pressure regime on China violate mu

ltilateral trade rules, ministry spokesman Gao Feng said at a regular news conference.

The office of the United States Trade Representative proposed to take further action by imposing 25 percent of addition

al tariffs on Chinese imports with an annual trade value of approximately $300 billion. The USTR is seek

ing comment and will hold a public hearing regarding the proposed modification on June 17.

Gao said the impact of US tariffs imposed on Chinese products starting last year was “completely controllable.”
