Japan likely to file complaint with WTO steel trade.

TOKYO, Sept. 30 Kyodo

The Japanese government is likely to file a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) by the end of October against the U.S. government for successive antidumping moves against imports from Japan and other exporters, officials at the Japan Federation of Iron and Steel Workers' Unions said Thursday.

With the U.S. steel industry lodging antidumping suits against almost all kinds of steel imports, major Japanese steelmakers are urging the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) to file a complaint with the WTO that the U.S. is violating the spirit of the world trade body.

MITI is expected to complete preparations for a complaint in a month, the officials said.
