Asked whether the trade war has begun, Geng said, "China will not ignite a trade war, yet we are not afraid of it".
The global sell-off came after President Donald Trump threatened to put tariffs on another $400 billion in imports from China, and the Chinese government said it would retaliate.
On Friday, after the Trump administration's first tariff action, Beijing responded with reciprocal tariffs on $50 billion in US goods, including cars, soybeans, dairy, oil, propane and other high-value trade categories.

And Beijing has other ways to inflict pain on American companies.
So far Beijing has targeted major American exports to China such as soybeans, which brought in $14 billion in sales previous year, and are grown in states that supported Trump during the 2016 presidential election, as well as other politically important products. "Beijing has a freer hand for informal retaliation, which will now start to increase".
