China says it filed a complaint at the World Trade Organization against US tariffs on 16 billion dollars worth of Chinese goods. The Chinese commerce ministry added, Beijing seeks to safeguard free trade and multilateral mechanisms. It noted, China is determined to defend its legitimate rights and interests.

The two countries have imposed tit-for-tat tariffs on a combined 100 billion dollars worth of products since early July.
