EU states ‘unanimously’ back counter-tariffs against US: sources

Brussels (AFP) – EU countries on Thursday unanimously approved a raft of retaliatory tariffs against painful duties imposed by US President Donald Trump on steel and aluminium, European sources said.

“Member states have today unanimously supported the commission’s plan for the adoption of rebalancing measures on the US tariffs,” a European Commission source told AFP, adding that they would be implemented “in coming days.”
