China firmly opposes the United States’ new threat to impose additional tariffs on about $550 billion

In a brief statement, the ministry said the US act is unilateral, trade protectionism, and using maximum pressure.
It violates the consensus reached between the top leaders of the two co澳门真人线上亚博担保网夜生活女神会所
