Juncker will meet with Trump in Washington on July 25

President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker will leave for Washington on Wednesday, July 25 to meet with US President Donald Trump in the White House, the Commission said Tuesday in a brief press release.

“The two leaders will discuss the deep cooperation between the European Union and the United States government and institutions across a wide range of priorities, including foreign and security policy, counterterrorism, energy security, and economic growth,” the statement disclosed.

It added that Trump and Juncker “will focus on improving trans-Atlantic trade and forging a stronger economic partnership.”

The meeting comes amid tension between the European Union and the United States following Trump’s decision in early June to increase import duties on European steel and aluminum.

The EU retaliated by imposing additional customs duties on dozens of American goods, including jeans, Bourbon and motorcycles.
