Canada welcomes U.S. comments on its steel not posing a threat

MONTREAL, June 20 (Reuters) - Canada welcomes comments that U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross made on Wednesday to the effect that Canadian steel does not pose a direct security threat, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told reporters.

The U.S. administration last month imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum from a number of nations, citing security reasons. Ross, speaking to a U.S. Senate committee, said Washington was most concerned about overall steel imports. (Reporting by Allison Lampert, writing by David Ljunggren Editing by James Dalgleish)
