China will take steps to defend its national interest if the European Union were to imposeprovisional antidumping duties on Chinese solar panels and investigate wirelesscommunications networksa high-level Chinese government official said on Monday inBrussels.

Zhong ShanChina's chief international trade representativeled a government delegation tothe EU headquarters to meet EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht and Jean-Luc Demarty,director-general for trade.

Zhong said the EU's anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigation into Chinese solarpanels and the looming action on wireless telecommunications networks would hurt the Chineseindustries and workers concernedand seriously sour the climate for bilateral trade andeconomic engagement.

Such practices of trade protectionism are not acceptable to Chinaand the amplification andescalation of trade disputes would serve neither party wellhe said.

The European Alliance for Affordable Solar Energy estimates that more than 200,000 jobs willbe lost as a direct consequence of the European Commission's punitive plans.

Monday also was the last day of Premier Li Keqiang's visit to EuropeAccording to Li andGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel's news conference on Sundaythe two countries opposeany punitive tariffs from the EU on Chinese solar panels and mobile telecommunicationsequipment manufacturers.

By the end of 2013, EU member states will vote to decide on the imposition of trade penalties.

The EU's trade chief said on Tuesday that Beijing's efforts were "a waste of time".

"They are not going to impress me by putting pressure on member states," De Gucht told theEuropean Parliament's influential trade committee.

De Gucht's press office said the possibility of a negotiated settlement in partnership with theUnited States would be examined.
