NHK reported online that senior officials from Japan, the EU, Canada, and Mexico are expected to assemble in Geneva today to discuss possible coordinated responses to the Trump administration’s reported proposal to impose additional tariffs on foreign auto imports. They will probably exchange opinions on the countermeasures they could take based on WTO rules in the event that Washington decides to go ahead and impose additional tariffs. In preparation for the  “free, fair, and reciprocal” (FFR) trade talks with the United States scheduled for August, Japanese officials are reportedly eager to receive a briefing from EU officials on the results of the U.S.-EU summit held in Washington last week.
