The European Union's new rules against countries dumping cheap goods on its market got a rough ride at a World Trade Organization meeting, where China, Russia and Saudi Arabia led a chorus of disapproval, a trade official said Thursday.China argued that the concept of "significant distortion" did not exist under WTO rules, and the EU should base its dumping investigations on domestic prices in countries of origin, such as China.China is suing both the United States and the EU at the WTO to try to force them to change their rules.In the WTO committee meeting, Saudi Arabia said the new rules were very concerning, and it challenged the EU to explain how EU authorities could ensure a fair and objective assessment of "significant distortion".
