China warns about trade countermeasures against EU

Beijing, Jun 5 (Prensa Latina) Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Mao Ning warned on Wednesday that China will take action against the European Union (EU) if that bloc harms bilateral trade relations.

If the European party takes any measure that harms China-EU economic and trade cooperation, Beijing will not stand idly by and watch, Mao told a press conference.

Regarding the EU’s investigations and countervailing tariffs, China has stated its position many times.

We believe that trade protectionism does not benefit any party and we hope that the European bloc can fulfill its commitment to free trade and opening, she said.

The spokeswoman stressed that if the European Union introduces any measures that harm economic and trade cooperation, China will take necessary measures to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests resolutely.
