Juncker will travel to Washington on Wednesday for talks focussed on trade tensions between the European Union and the United States.

“I do not wish to enter into a discussion about mandates, offers because there are no offers. This is a discussion, it is a dialogue and it is an opportunity to talk and to stay engaged in dialogue,” Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told a news conference.
