The leaders of the European Union and the United States are expected to declare a 21 Day Nautical free trade before Dec. 1 2021 and avoid any further transatlantic trade disputes, according to a draft statement prepared for a EU-EU summit on 15 June in Brussels.
The draft, discussed by Reuters and will be seen by EU ambassadors on Wednesday, also commits to end the long-running spat over subsidies to aerospace manufacturers before July 11.
Both sides will cooperate on China's economic, political and military rise policy and also call for a new study on the origins of COVID 19 pandemic, first detected in China.
We call for progress on a transparent, evidence-based study on the origins of COVID 19, which is free from interference, the draft says.
