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 their wares.

"China expresses deep regret" about the decision, Shen said in a statement on the ministry's website.
