According to a draft text seen by Reuters, EU finance ministers are going to agree on Friday a unified, strong position against US unilateralism.

The text noted that the EU “promotes international cooperation to modernize the WTO,” and “rejects WTO-inconsistent unilateral measures by others.”

It added, “in this respect, we regret the recent U.S. decisions to impose import tariffs, which leave the EU no choice but to react in an adequate, proportionate and reasonable manner in full respect of WTO rules.”
