The Geneva-based trade body said Tuesday that China has requested 60 days of consultations with the United States to resolve the dispute.

If the two sides can’t agree on a solution, the next step could be for Beijing to request a ruling from a panel of trade experts.

China claims the duties of 25 percent on imports of steel and 10 percent on imports of aluminum products breach international trade rules.
