On the issue of tariffs against US steel and aluminum, China and the EU have the same attitude at the WTO.
The Russian satellite network quoted the EU's statement released by the WTO on Monday, saying: "The EU hereby informs the US government, the Chinese government and the WTO dispute settlement body. In view of the huge trade interests, the EU requires China to join China on April 9, 2018. The subject of the notification from WTO member states is the consultation of 'the United States has taken certain measures for steel and aluminum products'."
The EU said that steel and aluminum tariffs are of vital interest to the EU. If the exemption period is over, the US measures will seriously hit the EU's exports. "The EU hopes to join China's consultation process for WTO application because it involves our major trade interests."
