Norway filed a challenge to the U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium with the World Trade Organization on Tuesday.

"In Norway's view, the additional tariffs imposed by the U.S. on steel and aluminium imports are a violation of the WTO rules. Today we have therefore requested dispute settlement consultations with the US in the WTO," Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Soereide said in a statement.
