The European Union and Japan on Tuesday signed a "landmark" free trade deal that comes as Washington imposes new tariffs and threatens a trade war with China.

The deal signed in Tokyo by the EU's top officials and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is the biggest ever negotiated by the EU and creates a free trade zone covering nearly a third of the world's GDP.
