Here is a corrected Google interpretation of a statement:

A orator of a Ministry of Commerce done a matter on China’s goal to take countermeasures opposite some alien products from a United States:

Recently, on a basement of a proclamation of a 10% tariff list for China’s $200 billion exported to a United States, a US has due lifting a taxation rate from 10% to 25%. In this regard, China has motionless to levy tariffs on a approximately 60 billion US dollars of products alien from a United States in suitability with a 4 opposite taxation rates. China’s differential taxation rate counter-measures are receptive and restrained. They are put brazen after extensively listening to opinions and delicately assessing a impact, generally holding into comment factors such as a gratification of a people, a continuation of a enterprise, and a upkeep of a tellurian industrial chain. The doing date of a taxation measures will be theme to a actions of a US, and China pot a right to continue to deliver other countermeasures. China always believes that conference on a basement of mutual respect, equivalence and mutual advantage is an effective approach to solve trade differences. Any uneven hazard or extort will usually lead to intensification of conflicts and repairs to a interests of all parties.

The Chinese side once again stressed that since a US side has regularly escalated a conditions notwithstanding a interests of both enterprises and consumers, China has to take required counter-measures to urge a country’s grace and a interests of a people, urge giveaway trade and a multilateral system, and urge a common interests of all countries in a world.
