MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian aluminum producer Rusal said on Friday its aluminum poses no threat to U.S. firms as its products are “not produced in sufficient quantity” by U.S.-based producers.

“Imports will continue, especially in those segments which are in deficit of supply,” Rusal said in a reply to a request by Reuters.

Rusal, which said that over 10 percent of its total sales go to the United States, said it was keen “to continue supply U.S. customers and support U.S. jobs”.
