BERLIN (Reuters) – Europe will not bow to threats from the United States in a trade dispute and wants to resolve it via negotiation, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Tuesday before European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker heads to Washington for talks on the issue.
“It is good that Jean-Claude Juncker will be in Washington tomorrow to talk and to seek a solution but we are not heading to negotiations with a pistol at our chest. I don’t think threats bring us closer to a solution,” Maas said.
“We in Europe must stick together… I hope that we succeed in resolving this via consensus but we will not be threatened and climb down so easily,” he told German public television.
