German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and his Social Democratic Party are considering a push to revive talks on a free trade agreement between the European Union and the US, Der Spiegel reported.

“Germany should dismantle transatlantic trade barriers and make a new start on a free trade agreement that increases prosperity while protecting climate and social policy standards,” the magazine quoted a strategy paper as saying.
