Germany says 'unlawful' U.S. tariffs risk spiral of escalation

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany regards as “unlawful” a U.S. decision to move ahead with tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union but will continue to push for free trade and open markets, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said.

“This measure brings the danger of a spiral of escalation, which in the end harms everyone,” Seibert added in a statement.
