WTO rules against U.S. import tariffs on China steel, solar panels

GENEVA, July 14 (Reuters) - World Trade Organisation judges found on Monday that the United States had violated global trade rules by imposing import duties on a range of Chinese steel products and solar panels that Washington asserted had government subsidies.

But the three-member panel also rejected some of the Chinese arguments against the U.S. countervailing duties in the $7.2 billion dispute brought in May 2012, which has echoes in Washington’s trade relations with other countries.
