EU, USA to meet on Russia aid

FOOD aid to Russia, the next round of world trade talks and gene-modified food are all on the agenda of a meeting between US agriculture secretary Dan Glickman and European Union farm commissioner Franz Fischler.

Possible accords with the USA on veterinary issues and wine, as well as a number of unspecified world trade issues, will also be discussed.

The European Union has until May to review its ban on imports of beef boosted with growth hormones.
