Xinhua reported that the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Norway on Tuesday filed a complaint at the World Trade Organization (WTO) to fight back against US tariffs on steel and aluminum. Norway requested WTO dispute settlement consultations with the United States as the first stage of the international organization's settlement process

Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Soreide said "In Norway's view, the additional tariffs imposed by the United States on steel and aluminum imports are a violation of the WTO rules. The WTO and its dispute settlement system is the established forum for handling disagreements about trade policy.”

The Norwegian minister said that Washington's "disregard for WTO rules weakens the credibility of the United States in international trade, and risks undermining the rules based multilateral trading system".
