EU says it is open to talks with U.S. in row over aircraft subsidies

BRUSSELS, July 2 (Reuters) - The European Union said on Tuesday it is open to talks with United States in a row over aircraft subsidies but said figures quoted by Washington as it threatened more tariffs were based on internal U.S. estimates.

“The EU remains open for discussions with the U.S., provided these are without preconditions and aim at a fair outcome,” a spokesman for the EU executive said.

Just days after reaching a truce in the U.S.-China trade war, the U.S. Trade Representative’s office released a list of $4 billion of additional EU goods - including olives, Italian cheese and Scottish whisky - that could be hit with tariffs.
