China warns USA against imposing tariffs as latest trade talks end inconclusively

Trade tensions between the United States and China, the world's two largest economies, had intensified in April after Beijing said it was slapping duties on 106 American imports following Washington's plans to put new tariff on hundreds of Chinese items.
