China files a complaint against the U.S. with the World Trade Organization.
The Chinese Commerce Ministry confirmed Beijing filed the complaint over the latest round of tariffs which went into effect over the weekend.
The Trump administration imposed a 15% tariff on roughly $112 billion worth of Chinese goods on Sunday, and China responded with a 10% tariff on U.S. crude.
The WTO complaint alleges the U.S. violated agreements made at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan in June.
Another round of tariffs is set to go into effect between the two countries in December.
