Source: Japan to join European Union in WTO talks on US metal tariffs – Reuters


Reuters quotes a Japanese government source, as saying that Japan is looking forward to joining the European Union (EU) in its effort to set up dispute resolution talks with the US over Washington’s steel and aluminum tariffs, under the World Trade Organisation (WTO) framework.

The source said: “We are in the same situation as the other countries, so we want to participate in the talks and share information. Our ultimate goal is to get the U.S. to repeal these tariffs.”

Japan has told the WTO it wants to participate in similar consultations requested by Canada and Mexico as it looks to join forces with countries affected by US tariffs, the source added.
