China has reserved the right to appeal a WTO dispute panel’s ruling against import tariffs assessed on auto parts, AFP reported.

"The Chinese side does not completely agree with the content and conclusion of the dispute settlement panel’s report," the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement. China has contended that the tariffs are to prevent auto makers from avoiding taxes by importing large chunks of cars for assembly in China.
