Japan has no immediate plan to raise a trade dispute against U.S. steel and aluminium tariffs to the World Trade Organization, a senior Japanese finance ministry official said on Friday.
"For now, Japan will seek to gain the understanding of the United States that its steel exports don`t threaten U.S. national security," the official told reporters.
Japan is the only major U.S. ally that did not receive exemptions from President Donald Trump`s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
