Japan reportedly ready to scrap trade deal if U.S. imposes additional auto tariffs

Saturday’s Sankei wrote that it learned on Friday that the Japanese government will inform the U.S. that if additional tariffs are imposed on Japanese cars under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act, it will scrap the bilateral trade deal. According to Sankei, the move is an apparent bid to pressure the U.S. ahead of the signing of the accord. Sankei said that Foreign Minister Motegi has already drafted a document to this effect, so it appears that the two sides have agreed that there will be no imposition of additional auto tariffs and export quotas as along as the trade agreement is in effect.
