China to fight back against culprit US tariff move
"China is confident that it will follow its own path and do its own things well, and will never waver in its stand on countering any provocations by the U.S. side," the newspaper said in a commentary.
U.S. politicians, seeking to hamper China's economic development, still want to use the tactics of exerting maximum pressure on China that has achieved few results, the paper said.
The United States will not win the trade war because of the plight faced by its farmers and businesses, it said.
China said on Saturday it strongly opposes Washington's decision to levy additional tariffs on US$550 billion worth of Chinese goods and warned the United States of consequences if it does not end its "wrong actions".
U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Friday that Washington will impose an additional 5per cent duty on the Chinese goods, hours after Beijing announced its latest retaliatory tariffs on about US$75 billion worth of U.S. goods in the latest tit-for-tat moves in their bilateral trade dispute.
The intensifying U.S.-China trade war stoked worries about a global economic recession.
