France on Thursday July 11th rejected a US investigation into its plans to tax internet giants which could trigger punitive tariffs, saying "threats" were not the way to resolve disputes, AFP has reported.

"Between allies, I believe we can and must resolve our differences in another way than through threats," Economy Minister Bruno le Maire told the French Senate ahead of a vote on imposing a three-percent tax on the largest tech firms providing services to French consumers.
