    Washington has decided to slap additional tariffs on 200 billion dollars worth of Chinese imports, as trade tensions escalate between China and the United States. U-S Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer says tariffs of 10 percent could be imposed as soon as September in response to Beijing’s retaliatory measures against earlier U-S tariffs.
