Trump on EU Trade Threat: 'They Can Do Whatever They'd Like'

Wang also indicated he expects more countries will cut formal ties with Taiwan, which China claims as its territory.

Wang said China had a long way to go on its path of modernization, and that it "will not and need not displace the United States".

According to The Guardian, Trump on Thursday said he had to act to stop the "decimation of entire communities" and insisted there would be a very fair process as the administration would use the next 15 days to negotiate exemptions with allies, including neighbours Canada and Mexico.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi speaks during a press conference on the sidelines of the National People's Congress at the media center in Beijing, on March 8, 2018.

However, Ministry of External Affairs said that India's position on Dalai Lama was clear and consistent.

The departure from the country's long-held stance of keeping a low profile had raised fears overseas of spreading Chinese influence. "The outcome will only be harmful", Wang said.

Donald Trump frequently makes no sense, but this makes even less than no sense.

"China's development and rejuvenation can't be stopped", he said.

"The misuse of the "national security exception" clause by the United States is wanton destruction of the multilateral trade system represented by the WTO (World Trade Organisation) and will surely have a serious impact on the normal worldwide trade order".

But only 1.1% of China's steel exports end up in the United States, so the tariffs are unlikely to have the effect Trump might desire.

China has said it is "cheering on" North and South Korea after they agreed to hold a leaders' summit on reducing tensions on the peninsula.

The comments follow those of China's foreign minister Wang Yi, who Thursday criticised the US's decision to brand the country as a "strategic competitor" and dismissed the notion that it poses a threat to the world's biggest economy.

Naturally, China has fired back with a warning salvo. We're going to have a great relationship, hopefully, with China, but we have to do something.

Japanese Prime Minister Abe is expected to make a visit to China after years of tense relations set off by a territorial dispute and festering disagreements over the legacy of the Second World War.

Wang said that Trump's argument was unjustified and goes against the trade order of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and reiterated China's firm opposition to these measures that will have a serious impact on the global level.

He urged the USA and North Korea to hold talks as soon as possible after Seoul said that Pyongyang was ready to discuss denuclearisation with Washington in return for security guarantees.
