China has started imposing additional tariffs on certain U.S. products from Saturday, according to a statement by the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council.
The tariffs of 25 percent, 20 percent and 10 percent were imposed on 60 billion U.S. dollars' worth of American exports to China, said the statement.
