Europe to Counter U.S. Steel Tariffs: German Economics Minister -- Market Talk

2 Mar 2018 11:18 am

1118 GMT - Germany's economics ministry says Europe will implement counter-measures if the U.S. moves ahead with steel tariffs. "It will trigger disruptions in global trade if U.S. import tariffs on aluminum and steels are imposed comprehensively," says German Economics Minister Brigitte Zypries. "Should Trump lets his words follow actions, Europe will respond accordingly," she says. Ms. Zypries says it is "incomprehensible" that European steel imports would threaten U.S. national security. "Somebody who talks so much about fair trade as President Trump shouldn't opt for such unfair means," she says.
