Maxwell's electromagnetic theory is used for calculating the force exerted by a slowly moving neutral current-carrying loop on a stationary electric charge. It is shown that, contrary to some recent claims, the value that the theory gives for the force exerted by the moving loop on the stationary charge is the same as the value that it gives for the force experienced by the charge when it is moving and the loop is stationary.
