Merkel Calls Other Countries Hit by US Tariffs to Support Common Position

BERLIN – The German chancellor on Wednesday said the European Union should seek a common position with other nations to rebuff the affect of steel and aluminum tariff hikes imposed by the United States.

Angela Merkel made her statements during an unconventional Bundestag (Lower Chamber) appearance where, since 12:30 (1030 GMT), she made herself available for a one hour MP question time in which she vowed that Germany would continue defending open and fair international commerce according to World Trade Organization (WTO) guidelines.

Among the nations the EU must seek a common position are Canada and Mexico, both involved in complex negotiations with the US in an attempt to update the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The chancellor assured she was going to the G-7 summit in Canada this week “in good faith” but faced the possibility of a non-agreement in trade issues, due to Washington’s stance, and that instead of a joint communiqué on the tariffs issue Canada, might end-up releasing a short resume on their respective positions.

The chancellor stressed that, regardless of current differences between her government and president Trump’s administration, the US is a “democratic country” with whom all dissenting matters are openly discussed at a bilateral level.
