Turkey Latest to Retaliate to U.S. Tariffs

Written by Sandy Williams

Turkey imposed retaliatory tariffs Thursday on $1.8 billion of U.S. goods in response to Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminum.

“Turkey is committed to active, robust and reciprocal trade relations with the US — but with the understanding that fairness cannot be one-sided,” Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said in a statement. “We cannot and will not allow Turkey to be wrongly blamed for America’s economic challenges.”

The measures, as submitted to the World Trade Organization on May 22, include rice, make-up, liquor, cars and coal.
