EU could target US items, including garments, in tariff war
In response to the recent US announcement to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, its European allies have warned that they could retaliate, with American products like blue jeans, Harley-Davidson motorbikes and bourbon being possible targets. The European Union (EU) has published a ten-page list of US products that could be subject to tariffs.

The list also includes T-shirts, singlets and other vests of wool or fine animal hair or man-made fibres, women's footwear with outer soles and uppers of leather, peanut butter, orange juice, cranberries and household articles of stainless steel, according to a report by the US National Public Radio.

Europe will not sit idly while its industry is hit with unfair measures, putting thousands of jobs at risk, European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker was quoted as saying. The EU is seeking comments from industries affected by the US tariffs. (DS)
