GENEVA (Reuters) - China accused the United States of hypocrisy and making false claims at a World Trade Organization meeting on Wednesday, after Washington triggered litigation against China over steel tariffs and intellectual property protection.

“The statement made by the U.S. reeks of hypocrisy,” China’s representative told the WTO dispute settlement meeting, according to a copy of remarks provided to Reuters.
