US President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker announced a deal had been struck at a joint press conference in Washington DC on Wednesday, allaying fears of a potential trade war between the US and the EU. Trump announced the creation of 'an executive working group of very intelligent people on both sides' to implement the new deal. Juncker said that 'zero... Еще tariffs on industrial goods' was the 'main intention' of his trip to Washington and said that a deal had been struck with the US President, allowing for cooperation on key areas. «We also agreed to work together on the reform of the World Trade Organisation, this of course is on the understanding that as long as we're negotiating, unless one party would stop the negotiations, we hold off further tariffs,» the President of the European Commission stated. It comes after Trump tweeted ahead of the meeting that he hoped the US and EU would drop all trade 'tariffs, barriers and subsidies' before concluding that the Europeans 'won't.'
