Nikkei and Mainichi wrote that in response to the Bloomberg report on Wednesday that the Trump administration is considering issuing an executive order asking Japan and the EU to adopt quantitative restrictions on their exports of autos and auto parts to the United States, Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told a regular press briefing on Thursday that measures concerning trade should be consistent with WTO agreements.
