Responsible for north american for the negotiations on trade, Mr. Lighthizer said the disagreement between the White House and talks around the tax of the technology, while at the same time that he was able to nod to the possibility that the United States will impose a new fee as a means of exerting pressure on the “Old Continent”.
Lighthizer said on Wednesday that the United States and Europe there has been a “very little while” in respect of the close out of a trade agreement, the trans-atlantic, so that it does not provide for this possibility to be realized in the short term.
“The president is going to use the rates that are required in order to bring justice to the affairs of the country, said Lighthizer. This possibility can be seen in the case of the eu to opt for a unilateral application of tariffs.
At the same time, the Financial Times reports that the secretary to the american Treasury, and Steven Mnuchin, has sent a letter to the british publication, he had access to four european finance ministers, where it announced the impasse reached in the negotiations and, once again, that the United States “cannot agree” with the then-current terms.
