The recent tariffs on EU products introduced by the White House obstruct the current negotiation process between Brussels and Washington in terms of resolving the dispute about aircraft subsidies for Airbus and Boeing companies. The European Commission said so in a statement on Thursday, adding that "it hoped to find a swift solution with the next U.S. president, Joe Biden", as Reuters put it.

“The EU will engage with the new U.S. administration at the earliest possible moment to continue these negotiations and find a lasting solution to the dispute,” the news agency quoted the statement.
