Japan: It's not the border, it's the BSE

23 March 2005

JAPAN - A Japanese agriculture official last week dismissed U.S. claims that Tokyo is more likely to resume imports of North American beef if the U.S. ends its ban on Canadian cattle. Japan’s Agriculture Undersecretary Mamoru Ishihara says what matters is that the U.S. and Canada take measures against Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. That, however, runs counter to what is maintained by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns and agricultural leaders like American Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman. Source: BrownfieldNetwork
