Some countries may be exempt from US tariffs on metal imports

The White House has announced some countries may be exempt from US plans to impose tariffs on metal imports.
 
The exemptions - on national security grounds - included Canada and  Mexico.
 
Reports, however, suggested the apparent softening of the US stance would last for only 30 days.
 
US President Donald Trump has said steel products will face a 25 per cent tariff, with 10 per cent on aluminium goods. 
 
He is expected to sign the plan on Thursday.
 
Mr. Trump tweeted Thursday morning that he was looking forward to a meeting later in the day on the matter.
