WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. is claiming victory in a long-standing dispute over chicken exports with China.

That's because the World Trade Organization largely ruled in favor of the U.S. in a decision announced Friday.

The U.S. appealed to the WTO in 2011 after China accused the U.S. of dumping and imposed tariffs on American imports of chicken parts.

The U.S. claimed the tariffs violated international trade rules and says that tens of thousands of jobs were affected by the tariffs.
