The European Union will answer US tariff all available measures
BRUSSELS, may 31 — RIA Novosti. The decision of the U.S. duties on steel and aluminum leaves the EU no choice but to begin to enter a response, said the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker.
He noted that in recent months the European Commission is continuously working with US to resolve the problem of overcapacity in the steel sector. According to Juncker, the EU is not the source of these difficulties, but, on the contrary, equally suffer from them.
“Now the United States leaves us no choice but to begin to resolve the dispute in the WTO and the imposition of additional duties on some imports from the States. We will defend the interests of the Union in full compliance with international trade law”, — said the head of the European Commission.
The head of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani affirmed that EU would respond to the duties by all available measures.
In turn, the head of the U.S. Department of Commerce Wilbur Ross expressed confidence that the introduction of Washington’s high tariffs on steel and aluminum will not affect the relations with the EU.
“We all have difficult times, every family, every country that is other, there is nothing strange. I think all will survive this time,” he said.
