BALTIMORE (Reuters) – Britain’s trade minister, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, said she will meet with U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo later on Tuesday to discuss resolving the U.S.-UK steel tariff dispute.

“We’ve been making good progress,” Trevelyan told reporters at an event in Baltimore of the steel talks. “We’ll see where we get to.”

Her comments come as sources told Reuters that the two officials may finalize a possible deal to eliminate 25% U.S. tariffs on UK-produced steel imports
