BEIJING - China voiced "deep regret" on Thursday over a
European Commission decision to investigate alleged dumping of solar panels made
by Chinese producers, warning that restrictions on its solar products could
imperil the global clean energy sector.
Chinese Ministry of Commerce
spokesman Shen Danyang made the comments after an announcement from Brussels
that the Commission will look at complaints lodged by a group of European solar
companies, led by Germany's SolarWorld, that Chinese producers were dumping
"China expresses deep regret" about the decision, Shen said
in a statement on the ministry's website.
