CORRECTED-German industry warns US auto tariffs not completely off table yet

(Corrects to ‘war’ from ‘deal’ in first paragraph)

BERLIN, July 25 (Reuters) - A top German industry group gave a cautious welcome to solutions proposed by U.S. President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to avert a trade war, but warned that U.S. auto tariffs were not completely off the table yet.

The DIHK group said it was up to the United States now to rebuild a basis of trust with Europe, and remove the illegal tariffs.

“The proposed solutions move in the right direction, but a significant portion of scepticism remains,” the group said in a statement, adding the meeting had at least demonstrated that Europe would not let itself be divided. (Reporting by Andrea Shalal Editing by James Dalgleish)
