Beef and bananas on Luxembourg menu

EUROPEAN Union foreign ministers meeting in Luxembourg today will discuss relations with the USA in the light of the trade disputes over hormone-treated beef and bananas.

THE World Trade Organisation (WTO) in Geneva will hear this week how the European Union proposes to comply with its rulings against its ban on hormone-treated beef from the USA and Canada.

Both countries have threatened trade sanctions if the EU does not lift the ban by 13 May.
