Chinese WTO envoy says China wont bow to US demonisation

GENEVA (Reuters) - The United States is demonising China and attacking its economic model to divert attention from itself, but China will never bow to U.S. efforts to tie its hands with a new set of trade rules, Beijing's envoy to the World Trade Organization said on Thursday.
