BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union is negotiating with White House officials at all levels to avoid an escalation of trade tensions with the United States, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Monday.

"We are working at all levels with the White House," Juncker told a conference hosted by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, adding that he would meet U.S. President Donald Trump at a meeting of the G20 economic powers in Buenos Aires at the end of November.
