The trade war between the world’s top two economies landed at the World Trade Organization on Wednesday, as the United States demanded a “reckoning” over China’s membership in the body. China’s WTO “trade policy review” — scheduled before Washington lit the fuse on a tariff battle with Beijing — served as a new front in the widening economic confrontation between the two powers. US ambassador Dennis Shea, who was among the first to speak at the closed-door review, argued that China had exploited its membership to take advantage of other nations and that if unchecked Beijing’s misconduct would ruin the WTO.
