Germany: Merkel expresses concern over Trump's tariffs

German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed concerns over US President Donald Trump's tariffs on aluminium and steel, during talks with high-level business leaders in Munich on Friday. «We are convinced it will be detrimental for everyone in the end. Nobody can or will win in such a race to the bottom. That's why we are seeking the dialogue now as we did before, but we can also react from the... Еще European side, the Commission made it clear,» she said. On Thursday, Trump imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminium imports, which will come into effect in 15 days. Merkel also seemed keen on dialogue between the US and North Korea to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula saying, «I call it a 'glimpse of hope'. More work is needed, but it would be wonderful if we could witness a deescalation because this tension has been a huge preoccupation for everyone.»
