U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo has announced that the United States and the European Union agreed on Saturday to lift tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, ending a dispute that has strained their trade ties since former U.S. President Donald Trump imposed the levies three years ago.

"The deal allows limited volumes of EU steel and aluminum to enter the U.S. tariff-free," Raimondo explained.
