A panel of WTO experts said on Tuesday that the US violated international trade rules when it imposed tariffs on hundreds of billions worth of Chinese products, offering a big win for China but ramifications for US remain unclear.

China hopes the US will fully respect the WTO panel's ruling and the rule-based multilateral trade system, and take pragmatic actions to meet China and other WTO members halfway to enable a stable and healthy development of the global economy, MOFCOM said.
