S.Korea trade minister says to consider taking U.S. steel tariffs to WTO
SEOUL, March 9 (Reuters) - South Korea's trade minister said
on Friday that the country would actively consider filing a
complaint to the World Trade Organization over U.S. steel
tariffs, but would continue to ask for its steel exports to be
exempted from the tariffs.
The comments came after U.S. President Donald Trump pressed
ahead with the imposition of a 25 percent tariff on steel
imports and a 10 percent tariff for aluminum on Thursday, but
exempted Canada and Mexico.
