SEOUL (Reuters) - Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said steel tariffs will be discussed at the upcoming Group of 7 summit in June, South Korea’s presidential office said on Tuesday after Trudeau had a phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Trudeau was cited as saying Canada had been granted a temporary waiver on U.S. steel import tariffs and does not believe trade issues involving the United States have been resolved yet, the Blue House said.
