Geneva, Dec 19 (AP) China and the United States have traded barbs again at the World Trade Organisation, with the US ambassador accusing China of theft of technology and an envoy from Beijing retorting that the US was "finger-pointing."

The standoff comes as many countries lined up to criticize and question Trump administration policies in a WTO trade policy review of the United States, a regular process that WTO member states undergo.

Wednesday marked the second and final closed-door session on the U.S. after a first one on Monday.

US Ambassador Dennis Shea sought to re-direct attention on China, saying it would subsidize its industries to squeeze foreign producers and dump products at cheap prices abroad, a transcript of his remarks showed.(AP)
