GENEVA (Reuters) – The European Union told the World Trade Organization’s dispute settlement body on Monday that it had acted within days of a WTO ruling to bring its funding of planemaker Airbus into line with WTO rules, a trade official who attended the meeting said.

But a U.S. representative at the meeting said that it was hard to give credence to the EU’s assertion and called for serious discussions to resolve the long-running trade dispute, although Washington was prepared to seek countermeasures if necessary, the official said.
