MADRID, Aug 13 (Reuters) - The United States should waive tariffs imposed on European Union goods because the bloc abides by all World Trade Organization rules on planemaker Airbus , Spanish Trade Minister Reyes Maroto said in a statement on Thursday.
The Spanish government rejects a U.S. decision to maintain tariffs imposed on EU goods, Maroto said, the day after the U.S. said it would keep 15% tariffs on Airbus aircraft and 25% tariffs on other European goods, despite moves by the EU to resolve a 16-year-old dispute over aircraft subsidies. The U.S. should seek a solution to the conflict, she added. (Reporting by Inti Landauro Editing by Isla Binnie)
