BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union’s trade commissioner said on Friday the EU was ready to negotiate its car tariffs in trade talks with the United States if Washington agreed to end tariffs on all industrial goods.

“We are prepared to put our vehicles tariffs on the negotiating table (..) if the U.S. agree to work together toward zero tariffs on industrial goods,” Cecilia Malmstrom told a news conference. She added the EU was ready to retaliate if the U.S. imposed car import tariffs.
