The trade war had escalated further on Sunday when Washington moved ahead with fresh levy hikes which Beijing had promised to match.

China said Monday it had lodged a complaint against the United States with the World Trade Organization , one day after new tariffs imposed by Washington on billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods came into force.

"The Chinese side is strongly dissatisfied and resolutely opposed to that. In accordance with relevant WTO rules, China will firmly safeguard its legitimate rights and interests," the ministry added in a statement published on its website. The additional 15 percent tariffs affected a portion of the $300 billion in goods from China that so far had been spared.

But at the recent G7 meeting of rich democracies in France, Trump spoke of new communications between US and Chinese negotiators -- giving financial markets a brief boost -- while China's foreign ministry said it was unaware of such contacts.
