The EU has threatened retaliation against any new tariffs on European cars by the United States.
A spokesman for the European Commission says the EU will respond in a swift and adequate manner. The bloc has issued the warning after the US Commerce Department filed a report that allows President Donald Trump to apply the import taxes. The report empowers Trump to do so within the next 90 days. Since last July, trade talks between the two sides have been ongoing. They have yet to produce any results. Officials say the next round of negotiations could be held within the next 30 days. Trump has repeatedly complained about U-S trade deficits. But he has been accused of adopting protectionist policies.
