China says it will make necessary response in event of trade war

BEIJING, March 8 (Reuters) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Thursday that China would make a necessary response in the event of a trade war with the United States but said such a war would only harm all sides.

Speaking on the sidelines of an annual meeting of China's parliament, Wang said China had no intention of displacing the United States and that the two countries did not have to be rivals but should strive to be partners. (Reporting by Ben Blanchard Writing by Philip Wen Editing by Robert Birsel)
