China seeks WTO dispute settlement over US protective measures

China on Tuesday launched the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement procedure over US safeguard measures on imported photovoltaic products and subsidies for its renewable energy products, China's Ministry of Commerce said.

As the US measures severely harmed Chinese trade interests, China's resort to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism was a necessary move to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests and multilateral trade rules, a Ministry spokesperson said.
