European Commission Executive Vice-President and the European Union's new trade chief Valdis Dombrovskis (pictured) has urged the United States to withdraw tariffs on more than $7-billion-worth of products from the EU, in an effort to settle a dispute between Airbus SE and Boeing Co, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.

He noted that the tariff withdrawal would represent an important step in improving transatlantic relations, and added that the bloc will have no choice but to "introduce [its] own tariffs" if Washington doesn't show a willingness to cooperate.
