BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s official English-language newspaper the China Daily on Friday changed a report from earlier in the day, now saying that the Chinese government will take action to respond to newly-imposed United States tariffs.

Earlier, the newspaper had cited a Chinese customs authority as saying China had already imposed counter tariffs in response to U.S. tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese imports, which took effect on Friday.

The China Daily did not offer an explanation for the change.
