Juncker and Trump met on Wednesday to discuss the EU-US economic relations and existing trade restrictions. The two sides agreed to jointly work toward having zero tariffs on non-automotive goods, and resolve any issues related to US steel and aluminum tariffs as well as retaliatory tariffs imposed by Brussels.
The newspaper reported, citing a source, who had been present at the meeting, that it was supposed to be very simple.
In late May, the United States announced new tariffs on imported metals. Washington's key partners affected by the restrictions, including the European Union, initiated dispute settlement cases within the World Trade Organization.
