BRUSSELS (AFP) – The World Trade Organisation has ruled that Europe's Airbus benefited from illegal subsidies, US and European officials said Friday.
Another European source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: "From our reading of this report 70 percent of the US claims have been rejected."
However, government grants were ruled illegal, he added.
"That'll have an impact for the next case," the source claimed.
Another WTO ruling is pending on the EU's tit-for-tat complaint against Washington over US state aid to Boeing, which is being dealt with by the Geneva-based trade body separately.
