China says that the tariffs it imposed on imports of U.S. chicken last year are legal, after the United States filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization saying Beijing violated international trade rules.

The Commerce Ministry said on its website Wednesday that China "believes the anti-dumping and countervailing measures it has taken on chicken products originating in the United States are in accordance with the law and conform to WTO rules."

The case is one of several that U.S. trade officials have filed against China this year at the WTO. The United States also has filed complaints about Chinese tariffs on steel products and its subsidies for wind power equipment.
