U.S. tariffs decision harmful to U.S. and EU -German econ minister

BERLIN, May 31 (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said a U.S. decision to move ahead with tariffs on aluminium and steel imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union was damaging but that Berlin would work hard to preserve transatlantic ties.

“This is damaging for the Europeans but also for the United States itself,” Altmaier told journalists in Berlin on Thursday.
