Trump Aide: Canada Trade Row a "family Quarrel", Trudeau Overreacting

06_01_Steel_tariffs

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lashed out at United States plans to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum for "national security" reasons, saying his soldiers had fought and died with American troops in Afghanistan.

But, Trudeau said, the idea the Americans would even muse about the idea that its closest friend and ally could be a security threat is ridiculous.

Saturday's criticism came just a day after the European Union and Canada, which are the largest sources of USA steel and aluminum imports, filed a formal complaint with the World Trade Organization against the U.S. tariffs imposed on the grounds of national security.

Canada on Friday filed a trade case at the World Trade Organization challenging United States tariffs on steel and aluminium and announced it would work closely with the European Union, which launched its own case hours earlier.

A similar investigation launched past year resulted in a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum, although in many cases those tariffs have been suspended while the USA negotiates with exporting countries.

Also, the Prime Minister rejected the idea that Canadian steel contained in USA military vehicles or the aluminum, used in its combat airplanes, in some way represents any threat.

Washington says it will hit Canada with tariffs on steel and aluminum. "But we're also putting a number of tariffs on consumer goods, finished products for which Canadians have easy alternatives", he said during an interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

In the joint statement, the six finance ministers called for "decisive action" from the US - adding that their goal is to convince the U.S.to move back from these tariffs.

"What the United States is going to say is that there is a provision in the [World Trade Organisation] that says, 'Yes, you can break your tariff commitments, you can discriminate if you fall under the terms of this security exception, ' " she says.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who has publicly embraced Trump several times in public, told reporters Thursday that Trump's decision to impose tariffs "is not only unlawful but it is a mistake in many respects".

"We are concerned that these actions are actually not conducive to helping our economy - they actually are destructive".

The G7 ministers urged US Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin to deliver their message before leaders of the group's member countries meet next week in Quebec.

"At the G7 meeting in the Canadian ski resort of Whistler, British Columbia, Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau said he expressed to Mnuchin "our absolute view that this is absurd that Canada could in any way be a security risk".

Mr Le Maire said it is up to the U.S. to take action to rebuild confidence among G7 members and to avoid any escalation during the leaders' summit next week.

"And that's why I regard this as more of a family quarrel".

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said the USA imposition of tariffs on metal imports is an insult to their long standing security partnership, Press TV reports.

Trudeau said he refused to go because of the "totally unacceptable" precondition.

Trump also said in a separate tweet that "The United States must, at long last, be treated fairly on Trade".

The move elicited loud complaints from USA allies.
