ROME—The U.S. and the European Union have reached a deal to ease U.S. tariffs on metal and aluminum imports that date to former President Donald Trump, levies that had been a longstanding irritant to European leaders.

U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo mentioned Saturday that the association would preserve the tariffs however would enable restricted quantities of European imports to enter the U.S. tariff-free. She mentioned the EU would drop retaliatory tariffs in return and expressed confidence that the deal would ease supply-chain stress and excessive costs.
