France's Le Maire says no talks planned with USA

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire says the European Union could not consider negotiating a free trade agreement with the United States

This is without Washington first withdrawing its tariffs on steel and aluminium.

 

Speaking to reporters at the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Buenos Aires, Le Maire said there was no disagreement between France and Germany over how and when to start trade talks with the United States. Both agreed Washington needs to take the first step by eliminating tariffs, he said.
