WTO rules on 15-year-long Boeing vs Airbus rift
The World Trade Organisation (WTO) is set to make its final ruling over subsidies for rival aircraft makers Boeing and Airbus, a dispute that has pitted the United States against the European Union over the past 15 years.
If the WTO says that support measures were scrapped too late, the EU can claim compensation.
Following the latest and final decision that is expected later in Geneva, Washington and Brussels can either let a WTO mediator calculate the damages that each side owes to the other.
The decision also said they can settle the dispute by negotiating a pact.
