China also said both its imports and exports with the U.S. rose in the first half of 2018.
"We understand internally that Chinese authorities have issued instructions that EU-approved Indian suppliers should be granted the industrial drug licence in an expeditious manner so they can enter the Chinese market within six months", Dua said.
"Those talks produced progress, so much so that the U.S. government said they would put the trade war on hold, but all of a sudden an announcement was made to impose tariffs on imports from China".
The new tariffs announced Thursday would hit $200 billion worth of Chinese imports, especially consumer goods, including the popular hats sported by Trump supporters around the nation, according to a story first reported by the Associated Press.
The inflation data bolstered the USA dollar, which rose to a six-month high against the Japanese yen and a two-month high against the Swiss franc.

China's foreign trade faces risks of slowing in the second half of the year, General Administration of Customs spokesman Huang Songping told a news conference, though he said Beijing was capable of handling challenges.
Exports rose 11.3 per cent over a year earlier to $216.7 billion, down from May's 12.6 per cent growth, customs data showed Friday.
In yuan terms, China's exports grew 3.1% in June and imports rose 6.0%.
A spokesman for the hotel told The Global Times: "Our boss was really angry about the endless tariffs the U.S. planned to..."
The spiraling battle between Beijing and Washington shows no signs of cooling down.
