The (EU) has requested consultations with the US at the Trade Organisation (WTO) over Washington's move to impose tariffs on and aluminium imports, sources said on Tuesday.

"Notwithstanding the US' characterisation of these measures as security measures, they are in essence safeguard measures," the EU said in its request on Monday.

Claiming that had failed to notify the about its decision, the EU requested consultations with the US under the Agreement on Safeguards, reports

The EU is temporarily exempt from the tariffs.
