WASHINGTON, Sept 15 (Reuters) - U.S. trade officials on Wednesday pushed back against European claims the World Trade Organization found U.S. aircraft maker Boeing (BA.N) had received more than $20 billion in U.S. government subsidies.
“There seems to be a number of significant inaccuracies,” Nefeterius McPherson, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Trade Representative’s office, said in response to published reports based on European sources.
Earlier on Wednesday, Reuters quoted an unidentified European source who said a WTO dispute settlement panel had found Boeing received more than $20 billion in U.S. government subsidies and called for them to be withdrawn.
McPherson said she could not discuss the content of the reports because it was still confidential.
