BRUSSELS/WASHINGTON -- The U.S. and the European Union agreed to end a 17-year dispute over aircraft subsidies amid broader efforts to repair cracks left in the trans-Atlantic alliance by the Trump administration to counter an increasingly assertive China.

The truce, involving the suspension of tariffs, was announced at a meeting Tuesday between U.S. President Joe Biden met with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel in Brussels.
