BRUSSELS (Reuters) – European Union Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said she would seek a full exemption from new U.S. steel and aluminium tariffs when she meets her U.S. counterparts Wilbur Ross and Robert Lighthizer later on Wednesday.

“Will be discussing steel and aluminium tariffs with … Ross and overcapacity with U.S. Trade Representative,” she tweeted ahead of talks on the sidelines of an OECD meeting in Paris. “The EU wants to be fully excluded from these tariffs and rather engage in a positive transatlantic trade agenda.”
