GENEVA (Reuters) - China won the bulk of its complaint against the United States in a ruling on Wednesday by a World Trade Organization dispute panel, after challenging U.S. rules on "dumping" of goods.

China brought the complaint in December 2013, one of a string of disputes taking aim at Washington's way of assessing "dumping", or exporting at unfairly cheap prices.

Some points of China's argument were rejected by the WTO panel, and either side could appeal the ruling within 60 days.
