EU uses gas to ease trade tensions with US

The British media says gas will be an important factor in easing trade tensions with the US.

Natural gas and soybean top the list of products President Trump said he wanted to export more to the EU in last month's meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Junker. Experts say Mr. Trump is using import tariffs to force concessions from the EU.

The US and the EU officials will meet on August 20 to discuss de-escalation of retaliatory import tariffs.
