brussels (anp) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker goes to the White House to talk with President Donald Trump about the distorted trade relationship between the EU and the US.
Talks to find a suitable date are under way, Juncker's spokesperson said Wednesday. Juncker had offered Trump a quick visit at the G7 summit in Canada last month, to keep the communication channels open and to solve trade problems.
The Trump government has imposed import duties on European steel and aluminum, on which the EU has increased tariffs on a range of American products. Trump is threatening new charges on European cars and car parts, which could turn the conflict into a real trade war. These potential new levies will also be discussed with Juncker.
Juncker recently said that Trump had called him a merciless 'killer' at the G7 meeting.
