China's man in Geneva scolds U.S.

Posted By David Bosco

China's ambassador to the WTO had some harsh words forthe United States' trade policy over the weekend. He called on the United States to "fulfill its international responsibilities, abide by global rules, and change its protectionist ways." A recent victory on a poultry dispute may have Chinese trade officials feeling confident about their free-trade credentials. And with Congress in a harsh mood over China's currency valuation, Beijing is no doubt eager to remind Washington that any retaliatory duties may well fall afoul of WTO rules.
