Macron accuses US, China of failing to respect global trade rules


French President Emmanuel Macron Thursday called for a "revision" of EU trade policy to defend European interests, accusing both China and the United States of no longer respecting the rules of global commerce.

"It cannot work if we are the only ones in the world to respect the rules of trade -- as they were written up 15 years ago -- if the Chinese and the Americans no longer respect them by subsidising critical sectors," he said in a keynote speech.
