EU countries back counter-measures against U.S. steel tariffs
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union countries on Thursday unanimously backed a plan to impose import duties on 2.8 billion euros ($3.3 billion) worth of U.S. products in response to U.S. tariffs on EU steel and aluminum, EU sources said.
The measures still need to be adopted by the European Commission, whose next scheduled meeting is June 20. They should be in place by late June or early July.
