China’s government promised to respond to a U.S. proposal to tariff the rest of the goods it buys from China, raising the stakes for the dispute between the world’s two largest economies.

“The U.S. bullying and application of extreme pressure goes against multilateral trading rules,” Chinese Ministry of Commerce Spokesman Gao Feng said in Beijing on Thursday. “China is strongly opposed to such practices. If the U.S. persists, China will be forced to take necessary actions.”
