Tariff burden is commensurate with additional costs Turkey faces due to tariffs imposed on it by US, says Turkish ministry.
The two nations are edging towards a trade fight that analysts say would undermine both their economies and likely slow global growth.
US President Trump says the move to impose $200 billion in tariffs is in retaliation to China's decision to raise tariffs on $50 billion of US goods and for its failure to open its market as well as its industrial policies.
US President Donald Trump is set to unveil tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of Chinese goods, a move that Beijing has promised to counter.
The move angered EU as well as Mexico while Canada retaliated by saying it will impose tariffs covering $12.8 billion on imports from the US. The US tariffs come into effect on Friday.
The decision would land ahead of a Friday deadline for exemptions to the planned metals tariffs amid stalled trade talks with the EU, and would likely prompt retaliation from the bloc.
The self-serving policies of global trade giants may provide a small window of opportunity for developing nations to improve their own global competitiveness.
The Trump administration has launched a national security investigation into car and truck imports that could lead to new tariffs similar to those imposed on imported steel and aluminum.
The United States and China have agreed to take measures to "substantially reduce" America's massive trade deficit with China, but the Trump administration failed to get the Chinese to commit to a specific numerical goal.
The decision comes hours before the temporary exemptions were set to expire at 12:01 am on Tuesday. Trump also reached agreements for permanent exemptions for Argentina, Australia and Brazil.
China imposed the new tariffs on 128 US imports worth $3 billion, including fruits and pork, in retaliation to US duties on steel and aluminium.
Stocks plunged on Wall Street after US President Donald Trump imposed sanctions on Thursday – and that fear rippled into Asia, where markets went on a stomach-churning ride.
