BEIJING - China's commerce ministry said on Tuesday that it has filed a complaint against the United States' planned import tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.

The Trump administration on Monday said it would levy tariffs of 10 percent on the Chinese products starting Sept. 24, marking the latest escalation in an increasingly protracted trade dispute between the world's two largest economies. China on Tuesday said it would retaliate but has not yet specified what steps it will take.
