South Korea launches WTO dispute over U.S. tariffs

GENEVA, Jan 25 (Reuters) - South Korea has launched a trade dispute at the World Trade Organization to challenge U.S. safeguard tariffs on washing machines, a filing published by the WTO showed on Thursday.

"Korea considers these measures to be inconsistent with the United States' obligations under the relevant provisions of the GATT 1994 and Agreement on Safeguards," South Korea's complaint said. (Reporting by Tom Miles; editing by Stephanie Nebehay)
