VIENNA (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier is willing to discuss equal tariffs on cars to ease trade tensions with the United States, he told Austrian public broadcaster ORF on Friday.

“We are ready to talk about low, equal duties on cars,” Altmaier said in an ORF interview after an EU trade ministers meeting in Innsbruck.

“This would be the best solution for everyone.”
