EU demands compensation for US steel tariffs at WTO

GENEVA, April 16 (Reuters) - The European Union is seeking
compensation from the United States for U.S. tariffs on steel
and aluminium, despite Washington's claim that they are not
subject to World Trade Organization rules, a WTO filing showed
on Monday.

In a step already taken by China, the EU said it did not
accept the U.S. claim that the tariffs were based on national
security, and it regarded them as "safeguard tariffs" under the
WTO rules.
