Beijing has repeatedly warned it will respond to hostile United States trade measures and has launched an anti-dumping investigation into USA imports of sorghum and has not ruled out measures on soy beans.

In Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Sino-U.S. trade relations should not be a zero-sum game, and that the two countries should use "constructive" means to manage tension. On Monday, the EU's Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström said the bloc would "stand up to trade bullies".

"We will look at the impact onJapanese businesses and make a final decision".
