China to respond if U.S. imposes new tarrifs

BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the government would respond if the United States implements new tariffs, ahead of US President Donald Trump's expected announcement of new tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods.
Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, speaking at a daily news briefing in Beijing, added that any talks between the two countries should take place on an equal footing.
