China says it will not initiate a trade war with the United States but protect its national interests in the face of growing US protectionism.

Minister of Commerce Zhong Shan said at a briefing on the sidelines of China's annual parliamentary session any trade war with the United States will only bring disaster to the world economy.

European Union and Japan urged the United States to grant them exemptions from metal import tariffs.
