Japan revives retaliation request vs US at WTO

GENEVA, May 6 (Reuters) - Japan is stepping up pressure against the United States in a dispute about the way the U.S. sets duties on imports it views as unfairly priced, by reviving a request for sanctions at the World Trade Organisation.

In a document posted on the WTO website on Thursday, Japan said it was requesting a WTO arbitrator to resume arbitration in the case now that the WTO had ruled definitively that the United States was breaking international trade rules.

Japan is seeking $248 million in annual retaliation against the United States in the case which originally involved anti-dumping duties on imports of Japanese ball bearings. (Reporting by Jonathan Lynn; Editing by Stephanie Nebehay)
