China shocked by threat of more US tariffs

China says it is shocked after the US announced plans for fresh tariffs, escalating a trade war between the two countries.
The US listed $200 billion worth of additional products it intends to place tariffs on as soon as September.
The move comes just days after the two countries imposed tit-for-tat tariffs of $34 billion on each other's goods.
Beijing described Washington's latest threat as totally unacceptable, saying it would harm the world.
