Merkel says hopes to avoid retaliatory measures against U.S.

BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday she hoped there would be no need for the European Union to implement retaliatory measures in its trade dispute with the United States.

She added that she was open to talks with the U.S. about a trade deal, but within the framework of World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.
