China's ambassador to the United States said Beijing will take counter-measures of the "same proportion" and scale if Washington imposes more tariffs on Chinese goods from a trade probe, state television reported on Tuesday.

Cui Tiankai made the comment in an interview with China Global Television Network.

Its website quote Cui as saying "we will certainly take countermeasures of the same proportion and the same scale, same intensity".

He said the tariffs on US goods that China unveiled on Sunday were in response to the US duties on imports of aluminium and steel, but not the Section 301 investigation.
