BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission has drawn up a list of U.S. imports worth around 20 billion euros (17.3 billion pounds) that it could hit with tariffs over a transatlantic aircraft subsidy dispute, EU diplomats said.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday threatened to impose U.S. tariffs on $11 billion worth of European Union products over what Washington sees as unfair subsidies given to European planemaker Airbus.
The EU measures would relate to the European Union's World Trade Organisation complaint over subsidies to Boeing.
A WTO adjudicator still has to set a final amount of potential countermeasures.
