‘EU Nations Have to Learn To Stand Up For Themselves If US Levies More Sanctions’: Phil Hogan

Responding to the tyranny of the United States, the outgoing EU Commissioner for Agriculture, Phil Hogan of Ireland has something significant to say. Recently, even the PM of Malaysia, Mahathir Bin Mohamad was vocal in his dissatisfaction over how America has levied sanctions over other nations, and there is no redress system to control this kind of one-sided attack.

Hogan has asserted to lawmakers at a European parliamentary hearing in Brussels that if the U.S. were to impose tariffs, Europe “has to stand up for itself.” He is asking that EU nations should identify American products that could be used as retaliatory levies.

The preferable candidate for the post of Trade Commissioner, Hogan has also ‘demanded’ updates to the WTO. This move precedes the fact that policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic are not cautiously preparing a ruling, that (it seems) can benefit Trump and encourage his administration to impose billions of dollars of new tariffs on European products — ranging from civilian aircraft to cheese and handbags

According to Hogan, proper updates could help avoid trade dispute resolutions driven by what is popularly being called as the “law of the jungle.” Hogan’s message was clear- he does not intend Trump to make a mockery of the other nations and promised to work toward a “positive, balanced and a more mutually beneficial partnership with the U.S.”

He has already insisted that to Trump that he better learn and respect the fact that it “takes two to tango.”

A three-person WTO arbitration tribunal is expected to rule this week on the value of trade countermeasures that will be available to the United States if it seeks to impose them on the EU for the decades of “launch aid.” The WTO has said that aid helped Airbus compete unfairly with Boeing when it came to worldwide aircraft sales.
