WTO rules for US in Chinese solar tariff dispute

The World Trade Organization (WTO) on Thursday ruled in favor of the United States in a dispute with China over tariffs on solar panels Washington imposed as part of the countries' trade war.
Former US president Donald Trump approved steep tariffs on solar panel imports in January 2018 to protect US producers, triggering an outcry from China and South Korea, and even protests from the American solar industry.
Beijing requested the WTO set up a dispute panel to judge whether the tariffs violated international trade rules, and in its decision, the body said it "rejected all of China's claims."
