"The U.S. decision to apply tariffs on aluminium and steel to all G7 partners for national security reasons has left us with no other option but to recourse to launching a formal complaint at the World Trade Organization (WTO) and to introduce safeguarding and rebalancing measures", the official said.

Trudeau is seen as the best bet to build a bridge between Trump and the rest of the G7 because his government has been able to forge deep links with the USA administration and across the various levels of American politics and business, the official said.
Macron took his metaphor further, explaining that "in Paris we're not in the habit of commenting on how it went-if it's hot, if it's cold, if it's warm, if it's awful".
Macron threatened to exclude the United States from the joint statement issued every year at the end of the G7 summit, part of an global pushback against Trump efforts to change trade rules.
The comments come after reports that China has offered to boost purchases of United States goods by about $25 billion this year ahead of a mid-June deadline for imposing tariffs on Chinese imports.
"Hog, apple, potato and dairy farmers are among those suddenly facing a 10 or 20 percent tax hike on the exports they depend of for their livelihoods", she said in a statement.

US stocks, apart from those of steel and aluminum producers, have fallen sharply in response to Trump's recent tariff announcements and other actions against trading partners.
"We also want to work together on the enforcement of the existing worldwide rules and speeding up the development of a new set of guidelines for government-supported export credit".
Trump will arrive in Canada on Friday, on the way to Singapore where he hopes to strike a historic nuclear deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
