The French Foreign Ministry called on Europe to "firmly respond" to Trump's plans to introduce duties

27
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called on EU countries to show firmness in relation to the plans of the American administration to impose duties on steel and aluminum, reports RIA News.




Europe must show its strength. She must be firm,
said Le Drian on CNews.

Earlier, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz expressed a critical attitude to the introduction by the United States of duties on imports of steel and aluminum from the European Union. He called the plans of the White House "idiocy."

Recall that last week, US President Donald Trump said that almost all countries of the world, including the European Union, are being “stripped” of America in the trade sphere. Due to this, he promised to introduce import duties on steel in 25% and on aluminum in 10%. According to the White House, this decision will be implemented until Friday (March 9).

According to the president, the duties will act "for a long time." Restoration of various industries in the US and economic protectionism were Trump's main promises in the 2016 election campaign of the year.

      It’s not easy to remember, but they know and love ... to show.
      They’ll pounce on themselves, stand up in cancer, smear them with petroleum jelly ... and no pitching will budge, no Trump will force to change this firm position !! ... Isn’t that a strong sight ??

    As it is a very big difference between Wishlist Europe and their capabilities! First of all, due to the lack of independence of Europe!

    It is time for the Americans to appoint their governors (procurators) to the governments of the European so-called "states". Maybe in time we will live to see the second coming.

    Recall, last week, US President Donald Trump said that America is "ripped off" in the trade sector by almost all countries of the world, including the European Union. In conjunction with this, he promised to introduce import duties on steel at 25% and on aluminum at 10%

    In the US language, this is called competition. Do you still consider them partners? It’s time to open your eyes ... You yourself fell under them, having placed NATO bases, now don’t scream, but follow the commands. Long live the "independent" European Union!

    EU threatens states with imposing pistachio oil duties! In fact, German economic experts are sympathetic to Trump's actions. Trump just wants to slightly balance the balance between American exports and European imports. The Germans easily compensate for their losses in trade with Russia. Few people know that the trade turnover between Russia and Germany in 2017 increased by 17% and amounts to more than $ 70 billion, not counting oil and gas.

      So, they know something, they just do not advertise it very well. yes Extra noise is useless. We trade - and it’s good, trade will increase - even better. hi

    "Europe must show its strength. It must show firmness, said Le Drian." - As "Tamara and I walk a couple," both "strength" and "firmness" must walk together, holding hands, and walk as a couple. Then Europe will achieve the desired result.
