WASHINGTON -- The White House issued a report Tuesday condemning what it called Chinese violations of intellectual property rights, turning up the pressure on Beijing in an apparent effort to justify tariffs taking effect next month.

The paper, titled "How China's Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States and the World," was produced by the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, which is led by outspoken China hawk Peter Navarro.
