China slammed the United States as a “unilateral bully” and a “rule breaker”, at a World Trade Organization meeting on Friday.
China’s ambassador to the WTO, Li Chenggang, was speaking at a WTO meeting on trade disputes where he also said that Washington had informed it of its intention to appeal a recent WTO ruling which found that US metal tariffs breached global rules.
“These troubling behaviours of the US have clearly depicted an image of the US as a unilateral bully, a rule breaker, and a supply chain disruptor,” he said, according to a copy of his speech obtained by Reuters.
