Germany: EU Should Present United Response to U.S. Tariffs

Posted by March 7, 2018

Germany's transatlantic coordinator told a group of newspapers that the European Union should take a common line in responding to proposed U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs.

After visiting Washington, Juergen Hardt - a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats - told the RND group of newspapers that an escalation of the conflict with the United States was not in Europe's interests and Europe would stick to a "rule-based world order".

He added: "It's important that the European Union does not let itself become divided."
