China has strongly condemned a US list of 50 billion dollars in Chinese imports set to be hit by tariffs and warned it is ready to retaliate.

According to the official Xinhua news agency, the warning was issued by the Commerce Ministry as the countries engage in a simmering trade confrontation.

US officials published yesterday a list of 50 billion dollars in Chinese imports set to be targeted by US tariffs, the latest move in President Donald Trump’s simmering trade confrontation with Beijing.

The move came a day after Beijing imposed duties on about 3 billion dollars in US exports such as pork, wine and fruit, a countermeasure to us metal tariffs that was widely seen as a warning Chinese officials will not hesitate to retaliate quickly.
