TOKYO -- A panel under the World Trade Organization issued a report Tuesday that largely agreed with Japan's claims that India imposed an unfair safeguard on certain steel imports.

India did not fulfill the necessary prerequisites to enact the safeguard and broke WTO rules, the report said, urging the country to correct the situation. Either side can appeal the ruling.
