Argentina Files Complaints Against U.S. and Europe With WTO

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Argentina filed complaints with the World Trade Organization against the U.S. for blocking imports of beef and lemons and against the European Union for restricting biodiesel imports.

Argentina is considering an additional complaint against Europe’s agriculture subsidies as they are affecting the country’s exports and output, Foreign Minister Hector Timerman told reporters today in Buenos Aires.

“The measures against Argentine exports that led to this demand have generated a lot of damage to Argentine producers and thousands of job losses,” Timerman said. “The time has come for Argentina to be recognized by the WTO as a victim of the actions by the U.S. and the European Union.”

Argentina also urged the U.S. to declare the Patagonian region as free of foot-and-mouth disease, Timerman said.
