China: We will never surrender to foreign pressure

China’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday the US was defining the two countries’ dispute over trade as a trade war, and China was only taking action in self-defense.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang responded to the earlier reports that the US President Trump is poised to sign an order restricting foreign telecom companies.

"WE WILL NOT SURRENDER"

Ministry spokesman Shuang made the comments at a daily news briefing in Beijing.

"China has stated several times that the new tariffs will not solve any problems. A trade war will be unpractical for both sides. China does not wish any trade wars and yet, it doesn’t afraid of it. If someone starts the war, then we will fight ‘till the end. China will not surrender to any foreign pressure. We are determined to protect our sovereignty and interests." he said. "We will respond with countermeasures to the US bullying." he added.
