BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union should try again to reach a trade agreement with Washington after the U.S. election, German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said on Friday.
Both sides were faced with the same challenges in their relations to China, said Kramp-Karrenbauer, a close ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“China’s aggressive state capitalism, its handling of currency issues, the question of whether we have a level playing field accessing each other’s market, the protection of intellectual property, the unity of state and party,” Kramp-Karrenbauer said.
