France said that the United States must comply with a World Trade Organisation (WTO) ruling this week against U.S. tax breaks for Boeing.
Aircraft The European Union will have the legal ground
The WTO said this week that a tax break from Washington state to help Boeing develop its new 777X jetliner was a prohibited subsidy, in a setback for the U.S. planemaker as it eyes victory in a parallel case against Airbus.
"The United States must quickly comply with the decision and put an end to these illegal measures," the French finance ministry said in a statement.
"If not, the European Union will have the legal grounds to adopt retaliatory measures concerning goods coming in from the United States," it added. ■
