EU to impose duties on US imports after Trump tariffs

Officials in Brussels, spearheading the member states' response, said the list of U.S. imports that will now face an extra duty at the European Union border includes steel and aluminium products, agricultural goods and a variety of other products.

This report comes after the European Commission announced it approved initial retaliatory tariffs on US exports worth €2.8 billion ($3.2 billion).

The European Union has announced a new range of retaliatory tariffs against the United States, in response to the us revoking the EU's exemption from steel and aluminum tariffs.

The tariffs will hit $3.2 billion in USA imports to the European Union.

A separate 10 percent tariff will be imposed on imports of playing cards.

Mr Trump said the global oversupply of those metals - driven by China - threated American steel and aluminium producers.

American exports including jeans, motorbikes and bourbon whiskey will be slapped with new levies on Friday, EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said.

The EU has said that the USA has no grounds for implementing the national security policy and is instead moving to protect American industries. Mexico retaliated against the move two weeks ago while Canada said it would place tariffs on U-S exports from July the first.

The EU retaliatory tariffs will initially target a list of United States goods worth 2.8 billion euros (3.24 billion dollars), most of which will be hit with import duties of 25 per cent.

The EU said that if the situation isn't resolved, or if the USA responds with more tariffs, the EU said that it will add additional tariffs on 160 US products worth $4.3 billion.
