The European Union (EU) said here on Monday that it will have a "swift and adequate" reaction should the United States decide to impose import duties on European cars and auto parts on the grounds of national security threat.

The U.S. Commerce Department on Sunday submitted to the White House the results of its investigation into the effects of imports of automobiles and automobile parts on the U.S. national security.

"Were this report translated into action detrimental to European exports, the European Commission would react in a swift and adequate manner," said Margaritis Schinas, a spokesman for the European Commission, at a news briefing here in Brussels.

U.S. President Donald Trump has 90 days to decide whether to adopt the recommendations and introduce tariffs on imported vehicles and auto parts, including those from Europe.
