European stocks were under pressure on Wednesday after the United States announced it would impose a 10 percent tariff on additional Chinese imports worth $ 200 billion in an escalating trade conflict between the world's two largest economies.

Investors are now preparing to avenge Beijing. "The surge of large-scale tariffs will inevitably destroy China-US trade," Assistant Trade Minister Li Qin Gang told a forum in Beijing.

Asian markets are on a large-scale decline, with record indexes in China, Hong Kong and Japan falling by 1-2 percent.

US Treasuries rose and the dollar rose against the yuan as oil prices fell after the United States said it would consider requests from some countries to exempt it from Iranian sanctions.

Overnight, US stocks closed higher for the fourth day in a row with strong quarterly results for giant beverage company Pepsi Cola and helped investors shrug off trade concerns.

The Dow rose 0.6 percent and the S&P 500 gained 0.4 percent to its best close in five months while the Nasdaq Composite Index rose marginally.

European markets rose for a sixth consecutive day on Tuesday as investors looked for a strong quarterly earnings season.

The Stoxx European 600 index rose 0.4 percent. Germany's DAX rose 0.5 percent, France's CAC 40 gained 0.7 percent and the FTSE 100  rose 0.1 percent.
