MOFA: U.S. to blame for provoking trade dispute unilaterally

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a regular press conference on Wednesday that the escalation of China-U.S. economic and trade frictions is not in the interests of any party and will drag down the world economy. Geng stressed that the trade dispute was provoked by the United States. It's the U.S. that first imposed tariffs and repeatedly tried to manipulate the limits of pressure.
