China’s Commerce Ministry issued a statement late-Tuesday, citing that the US’ decision to subsidies its renewable energy companies and impose tariffs on imported products has seriously violated the global market and harmed China’s interests, Reuters reports.

The statement read: “As the U.S. violations have severely distorted the global market for products like photovoltaic and seriously damaged China’s trade interests, China’s use of the WTO dispute settlement mechanism is a necessary measure to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests and maintain multilateral trade rules.”
