BERLIN, May 31 — Germany regards as “unlawful” a US decision to move ahead with tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said.

“Our response to ‘ First’ can only be: ‘Europe United’,” Maas said in a statement.

“We cannot understand the US decision to impose punitive tariffs on steel and aluminum for the EU, and reject it. The EU is prepared to respond appropriately with corresponding countermeasures,” he added. — Reuters
