European Community negotiators said Wednesday that they will meet with their U.S. counterparts within a week to try to avert a trade war that could damage struggling economies on both sides of the Atlantic. The announcement signaled that the 12-nation bloc has at least temporarily bridged differences over dealing with U.S. demands for further cuts in subsidies paid to EC farmers. Britain, Germany and others have urged compromise, while France has pressed for retaliation.
