WASHINGTON, Feb 7 (Reuters) - White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Friday that a U.S. decision to impose "Section 232" national security tariffs on cars and auto parts imported from the European Union is on pause amid attempts to reach a U.S.-EU trade deal.

"I think that whole discussion is on hold for the moment while we work through a good-faith effort with respect to the possibility of an EU trade deal," Kudlow said in an interview with Bloomberg TV. (Reporting by Lisa Lambert; Writing by Makini Brice Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
