EU's Juncker urged Trump to clarify his position over key issuesEuropean Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called on Thursday for clarity from Donald Trump on issues such as global trade, climate policy and future relations with NATO allies, Reuters reported.

During the election campaign, Trump, a billionaire businessman who has never held public office, strongly criticized free trade, NATO and policies designed to halt global warming, rattling Washington's allies and trade partners.

"We would like to know how things will proceed with global trade policy," Juncker said at a business event in Berlin.

"We would like to know what intentions he has regarding the (NATO) alliance. We must know what climate policies he intends to pursue. This must be cleared up in the next few months," he added.

Juncker said he did not expect the trade deal between the United States and the European Union, currently being negotiated, to be finalised this year as previously planned.

"The trade deal with the United States, I do not view that as something that would happen in the next two years,"
he said.
