A1: The United States invoked the WTO national security exception under Article XXI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) to justify its tariffs on steel and aluminum. The European Union, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Norway, Mexico, Canada, India and China have filed complaints against the United States at the WTO and say there is no legitimate or plausible reason to guarantee national security of tariffs. However, the Trump administration is of the iron view that measures taken by members for national security purposes cannot be reviewed by a WTO dispute resolution body. Indeed, the Trump administration sided with Russia in Ukraine`s complaint for the same reason, although it supported Ukraine in the conflict.

The outcome of the dispute between Russia and Ukraine gives an idea of how future WTO groups could deal with other disputes related to the exception of Article XXI of national security, including US tariffs on steel and aluminum. WTO observers have long seen a dispute over Article XXI as a proposal for a loss. There is concern that a ruling that maintains the U.S. view of the national security exception would inspire other countries to impose protectionist measures in the name of national security, while a decision limiting a country`s ability to use the exception could be considered an unacceptable violation of national sovereignty, which would discredit the WTO and possibly lead members like the United States to withdraw from the council.
